Espontaneo Grenache Ludovic Engelvin 2018, biodynamic wine, 100% Grenache Noir fermented juice only to make a white wine, rich, luscious, superb. This wine has not been made for several years. It was actually Ludo's first wine back in 2013, he made just a couple of barrels. Things have moved on a bit since then and he has very quickly established his reputation as a wine maker of very high ability. His red Grenache wines are superb and long lasting. But Espontaneo still remains in our view his best wine, both quirky and yet very serious in its depth of flavour, complexity and rich mouthfeel, (it tastes expensive!). A good alternative to a barrel fermented Chardonnay or white Chateauneuf, with some Civet de Lapin or Poulet, would be very nice indeed.
