Where and How?
The word 'canne' is a nod to the fact this is free-run juice (a canne is the tap used on old-school foudres for sampling). It comes from a blend of Grenache (70%), Syrah (20%) and Cinsault (10%), from 50-60 year old organically farmed vines, aged for a short period of time in tank and has aged in bottle since. Unfined, unfiltered and without added sulfites.
The Winemaker: Domaine Houillon
What happens when the world of an academic (a translator of ancient Ethiopian manuscripts, no less) turned draft horse trainer collides with the trainee of one of the most incredible natural winemakers we’ve ever seen? Well, that’s Charlotte & Aurélien Houillon’s story, and their wines are as magical as you’d expect. They settled in the Faucon, Vaucluse, far away from where they met (Switzerland) because they fell in love with a property: one with its own ecosystem and old vines. There, they combine their biodynamic know-how with Jura natural winemaking techniques to create unparalleled wines of the southern Rhône.
