Sulauze - Charbonnières Rouge 2019
Certified Organic, Practicing Biodynamic
From the importer-
70% Grenache, 30% Syrah; A ridiculously gulpable wine that would convince any Grenache naysayers that this variety can be lifted, bright and nuanced. It's L'Anglore-esque, but at 1/4 of the price and with a smidge of Syrah to add complexity and spice. This won't last long!
Karina and Guillaume Lefevre are two of the loveliest and warm-spirited people you would ever meet. He is from Marseille and she from Brazil. They purchased this property in Coteaux D’Aix en Provence in 2004, and began immediately to convert the 37 Ha of vineyards into Organic viticulture. They are now certified organic, and are also incorporating Biodynamic practices into their vineyard work.
They cultivate 29 hectares of vines, 24 of which fall under the AOC Côteaux d'Aix. They grow a variety of classic, Provencal red and white varietals (Mourvèdre, Grenache, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Calladoc, Cinsault, Marselan, Rolle, Grenache Blanc, Clairette, and Ugni Blanc), resulting in an average annual production of 15,000 cases: 50% red wine, 40% rosé, and 10% white wine. They adhere to traditional methods, guarding the authenticity of terroir with care and passion.
