Jardin du Poira 2018 — Romorantin
A Wine That
is a rare natural example of the gorgeous, little-known indigenous variety, Romorantin. Known for its intense minerality and lively acidity, this is like taking a dive headfirst into the cold sea: instantly refreshing.

Where and How?
This is biodynamically farmed Romorantin from the Poira parcel, which sits on clay-limestone and flint. Alongside the Romorantin, there's also Sauvignon Blanc and Pineau d'Aunis planted here.
The grapes were hand harvested, after which the whole clusters were pressed directly, and the juice started fermented naturally in tank. The wine was then aged for ten months in old oak barrels. Just 800 bottles produced.
Taking over the vineyard of a globally celebrated winemaker is not for the faint hearted. Then again, nor is moving across the globe from Montréal to France, pivoting your career from biologist to winemaker, and deciding to work biodynamically from the get-go. But that’s exactly what Anouk Lavoie-Lamoreux and Paul-André Risse did. After tasting a bottle of Bruno n’Côt in 2016, Anouk and Paul-Andre were introduced to Bruno Allion. Little did they know they would soon take on his legacy.
