Ludovic Engelvin, VDF “Aphrodite” 75cl

Terroir: Sandstone soil

Age of the vines:  50 to 60 years old

Vinification:  Ludovic uses sheeps in the vineyard. They graze from November to the end of March. He is looking to activate the microbial life in his soils.

Grapes are hand-harvested. Wine is aged for 12 to 18 months in barrels. 15mg/L of sulphite is added before bottling.

A trained sommelier and former pupil of Didier Dagueneau, Ludovic went back to his native Languedoc and opened a wine shop. He also bought 1 hectare of old Grenache Noir planted in 1955 and started making a bit of wine on the side. A few years later, with a few more hectares at his disposal, he sold the shop and went into winemaking full time. His schooling becomes apparent when you taste his wines as he takes Grenache to a level of refinement rarely seen.
