From: France, Pic Saint Loup AOC
By: Pierre Jéquier @ Mas Foulaquier
A satisfying blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah grown in a rugged landscape 200 metres above sea level in the Languedoc-Roussillon. Les Tonillieres Rouge is a medium-bodied red fermented for nine months with natural yeasts then bottled by gravity without filtration, fining or the addition of sulphur.
Pierre Jecquier is a former architect who downed tools to live a life closer to nature. He searched high and low for a vineyard in the south of France before falling in love with the mountainside vineyard of Pic Saint Luc. He was later joined by Blandine Chauchet and together they tend the vines with love and respect for the magical, unspoilt landscape. The vineyard is managed organically, with sowing and harvesting taking place according to a biodynamic calendar.
