2016 Val De Combres Funky Town
Disillusioned by seeing his hard work in the vineyard lost in the bottle Valentin Létoquart decided to break away from the Cooperative he was growing for and in 2013 Val de Combrès was born. Valentin now manages 7ha of organic vines in Luberon, southeastern Rhone Valley. With the help of his neighbours horse he manages these vineyards in a very hands off way, preferring the use of herbal teas to copper and sulphur. His plots are vinified separately with natural yeast no additions and fully express their difference of terroir. Valentin is one of Frances great young talents and is championing a region that has been forgotten by most.
