2016 Domaine la Taupe AK400
Bertjan Mol was born and raised in the Netherlands.
In 1999 on a trip to France, he tasted his first natural wine. It was a revelation, and led him to create Bruutwijn, one of the first companies in the Netherlands to import natural wines. As things progress in the way they do, Bert and his wife Nicole, decided they wanted to have a go at making wine themselves. Aware that Bruno Allion (whose wines he imported) was looking to retire, they proposed an offer, and Bruno agreed to let them take over a portion of his Domaine. This is 100% Gamay. 20% whole bunch, short maceration in fibreglass. Transferred to old barrels for 18 months. Not fined or filtered, bottled by gravity. Zero SO2.
