Description

All his life, Guy Bossard has been in harmony with Mother Nature. From childhood through to adolescence it was always his ambition to become a wine producer like his father, his Grandfather and previous generations of his family. From 1970, with the arrival of chemical fertilisers and weed killers, many winegrowers turned towards this "modernity". The results are spectacular but the adverse effects have not yet been measured. Quickly, with a little observation and common sense, you can see that all is not idyllic.

Within the Bossard family, they prefer to continue to work with the soil and use organic fertilisers. On his return from military service in 1972, Guy had a formidable secure income from an estate that was free from all traces of chemical products. He opted for the "BIO" and applied for certification. Rumours were rife among his neighbours and colleagues "This young fellow will ruin the estate in no time", but Guy persisted, even though it was not easy.
100% manual harvest. Fermented with indigenous yeasts. Matured in old barrels and amphorae for 15 months. No fining, no filtration.

Open and expressive nose of blackberry, strawberry and white pepper. Taut but charming with velvety tannins and flavours of sweet spice and dried fruits.
