Bordeaux as a region may have been slow to jump on the organic train - but this beauty from the Côtes de Blaye is a great example of what is possible here. Having got his parents on the organic path back in 2010 Damien Lorteau then headed off. travelling the world to make wines in as many places as possible before returning to the family estate in 2013 when he officially took the reins. His experiences in Spain, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and the US informed his view - that often 'less is more'. Work since has been as low-intervention as possible, fermentations with native yeasts, no sulphur during vinification; minimal amounts at bottling - and the results are superb. This is pretty - with lovely lifted aromatics and a pure feel to the red berry fruit and pillow of pert plum flesh. Spiced well too with notes of five spice and cedar box - L&S (Oct 2021)
