Vineyard/Cellar Stats: Organic farming; 30-106 years old on soils of gneiss; 100% carbonic maceration; bottled unfined/unfiltered with no added So2; zero-zero; 12% ABV

Winemaker: Loïc Roure

Loïc Roure was planning to open a restaurant/wine bar when he stumbled upon an old cooperative winery in 2003 and bought that instead, pivoting to the winemaking side of the business.  After an extensive renovation (the place had been abandoned since 1990) Loïc now works and lives in Lansac's old cave cooperative, farming his 10.5 hectares of vineyards around the Côtes du Roussillon A.O.C.  

He has worked organically from the start, preferring his hands to tractors, and mostly eschewing So2 additions.  Which is fairly easy in this extremely windy region, which naturally repels mold and pests, making chemical-free growing work easier.

We love Loïc's carbonic Charivari, with fruit and funk mingling on the nose and melting into a mouthful of dark, tangy fruits (blackberry + black plum!)  with tongue-tickling vibrance that keeps it fresh.
