Why we like it
Vignerons d'Estezargues is a wine making cooperative based out of the Southern Rhone Valley in Frances South-East. This co-op doesn't spray with pesticides and adheres to the "Natural wine" philosophy. Natural ferments using indigenous yeast that is present on the grapes at harvest, use of cement tanks (no oak here friends), minimal additions of sulphur at bottling, zero other additives.
"La Cuvee des copain" or "The wine of friends" is a Cinsault (65%) forward blend with a healthy splash of Grenache (20%) with Syrah and Carignan making up the rest of the blend. Lots of juicy raspberry, violet and a backbone of spice on the nose with this one. It's just a fantastic wine that punches so far above its weight for the price, this is crying out for a chill and a day at the park with friends.
