Details

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 life in wine with a shop in his home town and then ditched his cash register for his pick-axe and started t0 farm his own small patch of vines to produce a tiny quantity of natural wine. He learnt his craft studying with great Didier Dageneau in the Loire Valley and returned to his home region to quickly establish himself as one of the brightest young wine making talents in France. Ludovic is a serious and sensitive soul and this is transmitted in his superb expressions of the Grenache grape variety.
