Crozes-Hermitage Blanc 2018
A Wine That
embodies a hug in a bottle. From two of the OG natural winemakers of France, this was one of the white wines that made natural wine splash onto the scene in Paris' bistros. With its almond peel and rich apple strudel texture, this has the body and soul that other white wines envy.

Where and How?
This is organically farmed Roussanne and Marsanne planted in 1986.
The grapes are direct pressed and the juice is naturally fermented directly in demi-muids and old barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
The Winemaker: Dard & Ribo
René-Jean Dard & François Ribo are the Sonny & Cher or Freddie Mercury & David Bowie of wine. They have farmed and made wine the way they believe it should be — naturally — since the 80s. Back then they were the only ones in their region, and opposition was fierce. It's not been an easy ride.
Now, they're an inspiration to a herd of younger eco-minded growers. Neither wine from the Rhône (nor indeed French wine in general) would be quite what it is today without this iconic double act.
