VDF 100% Rose Julien Courtois, biodynamic wine, Menu Pineau, unique, Vin Jaune like, salty, layered, delicious. This unusual wine made from biodynamic master Julien Courtois is made by leaving the wine to mature in half filled barrels, so that a flor yeast develops, giving the wine salty notes of Manzanilla sherry, or the textured nuttiness of Vin Jaune. This is fascinating wine, layered with peach, apricot, smoky minerality and that je-ne-sais-quoi from the maturation. Try with tagines, tapenade or a strong comté cheese.
