Jeff Coutelou was one of the first to be certified organic in France — back in 1987! His neighbors were not accepting of his methods. When he planted hedges to help block their chemical sprays from coming into his vines, they burned them down. Twice. Today he continues to take on work that many others do not have the patience or commitment for, like restoring obscure, nearly forgotten varieties to combat the effects of global warming; and planting thousands of olive, almond, fig, and fruit trees for future generations. Coutelou is hardcore about not using sulfur. None of his wines have sulfur added and haven't for quite some time.

Le Gris de Coeur is made from pink-skinned varieties: Picpoul Gris, Grenache Gris, and the very rare Riveyrenc Gris, all native to the Languedoc. This wine expresses itself from different angles, but perfects the balancing act of minerality and fruit in the glass. Ash and smoke leap to the nose first, followed by sultry baked pineapple. Subtly funky, with a little acid on it–the first thing I’d pair it with is blackened salmon, or a balsamic-laced salad. Jonathan Kemp & Demi Elder
