Another co-ferment of Grenache Noir, Grenache Blanc, and Grenache Gris, but this one is from southern France, where these grapes are most commonly found. Charlotte Senat and husband Jean-Baptiste are rightly celebrated as natural wine pioneers in this part of the Languedoc, starting in the late 1990s and working only with organic and Biodynamically-farmed indigenous grapes. They are using zero sulfur in the cellar. While Jean-Baptiste is happiest working in the vineyards, Charlotte runs the business side, and is famous for organizing one of the biggest fairs for natural wines in the south of France.

Despite being zero-zero, this lighter red is not too funky, just unpretentious and gulpable. There’s a touch of spritz and a nice mix of rooibos tea and smoky umami on the palate, finishing with some orange and tangy cherry notes. Glou-glou but with more complexity, a category I don’t tire of. Great with a slight chill. In humble fashion, the Senats declare this wine ‘a perfect companion for a nice day.
