Le Temps des Cerises Avanti Popolo
Grapes: Carignan, Cinsault, Aramon, Muscat
Based deep in the Languedoc in hills just north of Béziers, Alex Prüfer has built a reputation as an alchemist of sorts, working with vineyards in one of the hottest and driest parts of France to create delicate and ethereal wines steeped in rugged charm.
Axel's lightest cuvée, Avanti Popolo is a filed blend of Carignan, Cinsault, Aramon and Muscat macerated on skins for just 10 days and bottled without sulphur or other additions. Floral and invigorating with bright red fruit and earthy mineral notes from the rich alluvial soils.
