2018 Bruno Duchêne Odin languedoc roussillon, france
$80

Bruno Duchêne is originally from the Loire Valley where his family had a thriving business selling farm machinery.
He then became a distributor of wild mushrooms in the Loire and Burgundy and discovered wine, particularly meticulous made, non-interventionist wines.
His vines are farmed organically, and because of the region's relatively warm, dry climate, Bruno only has to use a few sulfur treatments each year and because odium is not an issue here, copper is never used. In the winery; after a manual harvest and a rigorous selection there is 10-15 day cool maceration with a natural yeast, whole bunch ferment in 26hl Grenier wooden vats. The wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered and only a small amount of sulfur is added at the bottling in most years.
A blend of Grenache from two countries!
