2016 L'absurde Génie Des Fleurs Meandre
A magical first vintage from Herault youngster Tom Gautier and his partner Miha They farm a small vineyard in the south of France, near Bédarieux, in the region of Hérault. 2016 was the inaugural vintage and just 2000 bottles were produced. The domaine is named "l'absurde génie des fleurs" (the absurd Genius of flowers) as without flowers, there are no grapes, therefore, no wine. Their old bush-vine vineyard is planted with local grapes of Cinsault and Carignan. They make wines with no concession, no additions, filtration or sulphur - just grapes that are a joy to behold.
