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. 

Unfined/Unfiltered. No added SO2. Short macerations in whole bunches. Fruity, with good acidity and a hint of tiny bubbles. Just 11% alcohol.
