Le Temps des Cerises - Axel Prüfer
Axel Prüfer is a legend of love, a man whose soul is always on display in his wines, whether it is alight or in despair. (We say this because 2016 was a year he was apart from his wife and children and you could feel the longing - 2017, everyone's back home and the juice couldn't be happier!) A transplant of Germany to the Languedoc, Axel is both a very strong anti-capitalist and determined natural winemaker, one at touch with the wildlife and diversity of mountains around his vineyards and committed to minimal intervention in the cellar. His wines are typically light, exuberant gems which spark the imagination and demand to be drunk quickly, but with plenty of contemplation.
