Ancestral Julien Courtois, biodynamic wine, Cot, Gamay, rich and textured natural wine. Courtois reds always need time and my experience of older vintages is always delightful and Ancestral 11 is something extra. Soft, smooth sensuous wine which lacking nothing of its vibrancy when young but seemed to have softened and come together in perfect balance and harmony. Courtois is never full bodied in the mass ,market sense but the wine is still rich, stunning aromas of fruits and all kinds of herbal complexity. The palate is simply delicious, not funky but absolutely individual. This is an un-sulphured, biodynamic wine that anyone can enjoy and for the devotees of natural wine and Julien Courtois in particular, it is a rare treat. Not much left, snap it up!
