2019 Les Gelinettes
The king of the Anjou is back!
Humble, influential and special, Mark Angeli needs no introduction. His philosophies let alone wines are next level. The vineyard, which he refers to as a ‘farm’ rather than ‘domaine’ is managed like its own little planet. Following biodynamic principles it is self sufficient, and sustainable. Cows, chickens, bees, and various other crops all work together with the vines. If he needs to use any sulphur, it’s one that is originally derived from volcanoes rather than petrochemicals. Les Gelinettes is made from 100% Grolleau Noir, destemmed by hand and macerated for five weeks. Naturally fermented it is bright, fruity and laced with a wonderful tannin. Epitome of unicorn, check the label. Long live the king!
