Patrick Bouju! At this point, he really needs no introduction… but ok, here’s a quick one: he is one of the most endearing and competent figures in the world of natural wine! Sincerity, kindness, generosity, modesty… There’s nothing you would want to change about him! He unites, brings people together and doesn’t hesitate to share advice. Patrick has vines spread out around several communes, and his oldest vines are 120 years old. He has preserved many old grape varietals in his parcels, such as Limberger, Mirefleurien, and multiple varieties of Gamay. Veritable antidotes to standardisation, these parcels co-planted with different grapes bring richness and complexity. Patrick didn’t succumb to the fad in Beaujolais for fruit bomb wines. Rather, he works to help each parcel express itself to the fullest, seeking minerality above all, even if his juice remains eminently lip smacking.. We adore the man, or as we say in French, “On AIME La BOHÈME!” Poetry lovers, grab your corkscrews.
