Les Vieux Ronsards is surely one of the finest expression of the Grenache grape in France. It comes from vines well over 100 years old and the yields are very low making for a very concentrated wine. Yet the unique quality of this wine is in its complexity and finesse. Dark fruits mingle with herbs and minerals, garrigue and sweet spices, leather and animal notes, this is red wine that has it all. A beautiful glass of artisan Biodynamic wine, Ludovic only makes about 600 bottles a year of this, his top cuvee, a must try for devotees of Chateauneuf du Pape and those who enjoy the wines from Domaine de Villeneuve in the Rhone.

Ludovic Engelvin started his wine career as a somellier, running a wine shop.

After studying under Didier Daganeau in the Loire Valley he decided to return to his native Languedoc, and bought a single hectare of Grenache vines, growing on sandstone and clay limestone, which he began to vinify. He quickly established himself as one of the brightest young wine making talents in France and soon sold his shop to make wine full time. He uses no mechanical intervention, just a herd of sheep to maintain the land, and only herbal remedies being used on the vineyard - no chemicals here! Bottling takes place without fining or filtration. Ludovic is a serious and sensitive soul and this is transmitted in his superb expressions of the Grenache grape variety, of which he now produces several.
