Domaine des Grottes Petit Coin de Paradis 2021
Origin: Beaujolais, France
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, drinkability, electric acidity and buoyant fruit character.
Un Petit Coin de Paradis is a first-pass harvest 100% Gamay sweetish, low-alcohol sparkling Pet-Nat Rosé Romain calls "a little corner of paradise".
Unfiltered, unfined, zero sulfur added.
