A blended cuvée: 50% Merlot, 50% Syrah from organically grown vines. All of Andréa’s parcels are planted on clay-limestone soils. This ultra-natural wine has no added sulphites. Andréa’s top cuvée, Pénultième is the fruit of a long maceration (almost two years) and maturation in old Burgundy oak barrels. Bottled on the 7th of June 2017 without filtration nor fining, zero sulfur.
Andréa Calek was trained by the Rohel brothers in the Rhône and by Dominique Hauvette in Baux de Provence. Our globetrotting Czech then laid down his hat in Alba-la-Romaine, 10 km East of Montélimar, in the heart of the Ardèche, where he created his own estate in 2007. He bought some vines from Gérald Oustric, one of the most emblematic natural winemakers of the Ardèche. The estate is made up...All wines
