Patrick Bouju is one the stars of natural winemaking in the Auvergne where he has be crafting wines with great energy and finesse since 2004. As is the norm here, Patrick's vines grow in the dark basalt soils that reflect the volcanic history of the region.

Patrick and Justine work with the Goepp family in Heiligenstein in Alsace to harvest these grapes. They also acquired a large Alsatian foudre to ferment and age this in. Upon opening this is wonderfully bright and fresh, slowly giving way to the classic richness of Alsatian Riesling.
