This is a biodynamic take on a Bordeaux blend from Château Lamery whose estate covers three hectares of vines in Saint Pierre d'Aurillac, twenty miles southeast of Bordeaux.
Tasting Notes: Bordeaux (with a twist!): totally natural, but opulent, with a beautifully rich nose and a complex, rich palate. Plum and guava bouquet with some mushroomy, earthen spice to boot. Meat and potatoes wine!
Vinification: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec, with 9 months in neutral barrel.
"Château Lamery is based in Saint Pierre d'Aurillac. The estate is a mere 3 hectares with south-facing vines on well-drained sandy-clay soils. Since 2006 Jacques abandoned conventional viticulture and vinification to work naturally – working the soil, plant tisanes and preparations of natural vine products.
The vines are aged from 25 to over 70 years planted at 5,200 vines per hectare.
After a manual harvest and a strict triage vinification takes place in small cement vats.Then it is natural all the way to the bottle with a wild yeast ferment, zero additives, no topping up, no racking, no fining, no filtration and no added sulphur." - Jeffrey Alpert
