Jonc Blanc - 2021 - Rosé Pet Nat

70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Semillon

Bergerac, France

While the estate presents their wines with zero pretension, in the Rabelaisian tradition of shared enjoyment, the winemaking here is at the highest level with an unwavering committment to Biodynamic farming and the production of healthy wines with zero or minimal additives. Located on an unusual outcropping of two different limestones with very thin clay soils, giving tiny yields, Jonc Blanc produces wines that transcend the appellation Bergerac. They are bottled as Vin de France and show marvelous complexity of fruit as well as flavors of earth and stone. The reds here are bottled with zero added sulfur and the whites with minimal or zero SO2 as well. Hugely respected in the French natural wine community, the wines of Jonc Blanc are rare and unique. (Chamber St.)

Vinified in "pet-nat" this wine comes from a plot of Cabernets-Sauvignon of 3.3 ha and a plot of old Semillons of 1.4 ha. The total production is 4200 bottles. It is of course neither chaptalized, nor yeasted, nor enzymated, nor filtered, and bottled during fermentation after a light filtration on earth.
