Es d'Aqui Danslezetoiles Blanc
Grapes: Sauvignon Blanc
Jean-Louis Pinto, AKA Es d'Aqui, is a micro-negociant based near Limoux who works out of a small cellar underneath his family home. He works only with fruit from organic and biodynamic vineyards and has a minimal intervention approach in the cellar with all wines made without temperature control or added sulphur.
Danslezetoiles Is Jean Louis' Sauvignon Blanc from a single small plot of terraced vines in Tarn, South-West France. The grapes are whole bunch fermented on skins for 20 days before ageing half in amphora and half in old oak. Savoury and mineral while retaining a powerful core of peach and pear.
