Hirsute Blanc by Les Equilibristes
mineral - stone fruit - tangerine - round
“Les Equilibristes” (the “Tightrope Walkers”) aim to shake up winemakers willing to craft different wines. By freeing them from their habits and practices, they intend to shape together a vibrant and unique wine. Their set of golden rules are the following: indigenous grape varieties, organic winemaking, tillage, indigenous yeasts, minimal sulphur rates.
The 2 Equilibristes:
– François de Monval: “wine merchant”, cellar and restaurant owner in Paris (La Canonnière), wine enthusiast fed every day by its clients.
– Florent Girou: “travelling oenologist”, winemaker in the Perigord Region, wine-maniac, torn between the preservation of the ancient know how and the constant calling into question of some practices.
50% semillon. 30% sauvignon blanc. 20% chenin blanc. Organic style practices. Clay soils. Stainless steel fermentation.
