Ludovic Engelvin, IGP du Gard “ Espontaneo” 75cl

A beautifully rich, full-bodied, comforting white wine, perfectly balanced by the freshness and acidity coming from its north-facing position in the vineyard. 

Terroir: sandy-clay soils, North facing plots

Age of the vines: 63 years old

Vinification: Grapes are hand-harvested and directly pressed. Natural fermentation with indigenous yeasts and no sulphur added. Ageing in stainless steel vats.

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.

A few must haves
