La Grange de l'oncle Charles 'Mille Lieux Sur Peaux' Organge, Vin de France 2021
Jérôme François, the young star behind this delicious orange wine, set himself a goal, from his sommelier career to his life as a winemaker, to show the utmost respect to earth and vine. From the outset, Jérôme chose healthy and environmentally friendly viticulture by converting the plots of the estate into organic farming. Improving the organic and microbial activity of soils is essential for respecting natural balances. Today he farms biodynamically, has horses and sheep co-working the vineyards, and increased his vine density to promote root exploration. He's a winemaker to keep a watchful eye on in the natural wine scene.
Pairing: Traditional Alsace cuisine. Northern Thai with tons of spice is also great.
