Les Cailloux Du Paradis, Claude & Etienne Courtois, Quartz

40.00

Claude Courtois is considered Mr Natural Wine. They have a small farm that exemplifies what biodynamics is in terms of biodiversity and self-sufficiency, with fields for vines, fruit, animals as well as for growing wheat to feed the animals. No pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, chemical fertiliser or synthetic chemicals of any kind are allowed on the vines or in the soil of the vineyards. All wines would be entitled to Touraine appellation but they are always rejected as being atypical.

Quartz is from low-yielding Sauvignon and Menu Pinneau. Hand-harvested, destemmed and gently pressed with extended maceration. Vinified in barrel and aged for 12-24 months in oak. Drinks well in youth but decanting is highly recommended.

Golden straw in colour. The nose offers sliced apple &  poached pear, nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice. The palate is nutty with a firm acidity. His wines are considered very much alive and full of energy.
