Patrick Bouju is a respected and celebrated vigneron of the Auvergne who started making wine back in 2004.
His vineyard is planted on basaltic soils and neighbours the Puy-de-Dome, one of the youngest but now extinct volcanoes in the Massif Central. Patrick also makes wine from vineyards he tends to biodynamically in the Beaujolais as well as a handful of negociant wine. 100% Riesling from the Goepp family of Heiligenstein, Alsace. Aged in the Auvergne in an Alsatian foudre. Wow, a very precise and generous wine from Patrick and Justine. Great freshness but with a rich palate, kind of Jura-like ultra-gentle oxidation.
