VDF Rouge "2L"

2022
France
Languedoc

100% Cinsault. The name of the wine is quite literal: it is 2 liters of juicy, charming, glou-glou wine. What the name doesn’t explain is the wine’s raison d’être: it was the clever, collaborative brainchild of Louis/Dressner and Puech Redon, created as a work-around for the Trump wine-tariff era (wines bottled as two liters and up were exempt).

Like the other Puech Redon wines, it comes from certified-organic estate vines just northwest of the ancient city of Nîmes and just south of the Cévennes mountain range. The vines range from 10-30 years old, are planted on varying clay-limestone soils and have a generally eastern exposure. The terrain is flat to moderately hilly, with the vineyards (and cereal fields) surrounded by garrigue and woods.

The destemmed grapes are fermented with native yeasts and without sulfur in concrete tanks. The maceration is short at 5-7 days max. The wine is aged in concrete and bottled unfiltered and unsulfured. The alcohol typically doesn’t exceed 12%.
