PIERRE JOSEPH 2017

 

Another astounding powerhouse orange wine from natural wine enfant prodige Antony Tortul, this comes from organic and biodynamic grapes of Grenache Blanc and Sauvignon from vines near Languedoc’s Bezenas, some of which are rather old and were saved by Antony from oblivion. It sees only wild fermentation, with about 40 days of skin contact in whole bunches, and no intrusive and demeaning fining, filtration or added SO2. A veritable event horizon of depth, freshness and explosive personality: smoked butternut squash with candied ginger, saffron honey and baked nashi pear with rosemary.
