Purveyors of fine grape juice
2015 Domaine No Control Rockaille Billy auvergne, france
$55

Vincent Marie hand tends his small plots of fruit in Auverge using no chemicals in farming, as is the approach in winery.
Has a kind of sappy, fleshy feel to fruit yet there’s a good whipcrack of acidity to keep things perky and the finish builds and builds into its chewy, chompy, pleasing pucker. Scents of wild strawberries, undergrowth, tar and wet ferns. The palate sits in the dark cherry (but sourish, pleasingly) spectrum with pepper, bayleaf and salty herbs thrown in. It’s a wilder expression, but wonderfully so, and has good grapey tannin in tow. Easy to appreciate and work into. Mike Bennie - The Wine Front
