In the early 2000s Romain des Grottes exchanged his native Paris for the Beaujolais to help manage his aging grandfather's estate & farm, Chateau de Lacarelle. Although it was supposed to be a management job in the office, well-suited to his business degree, he eventually took over a few rows of vines and one thing led to another. Soon he was fully engaged in farming, the vineyards, and working in the cellar. His rustic/raw style wines are idiosyncratic and defy any typical wine comparisons. Low in alcohol, focused on freshness, electric acidity, and buoyant fruit character. Un Petit Coin de Paradis is a 'farm fresh" and fruity, low-alcohol, sparkling Pet-Nat rosé made from 100% Gamay that was picked early. Unfiltered, unfined, zero sulfur added.
