“Cochon de Dieu” is the favourite curse word of Fabien’s father. A 100% Malbec cuvée, from 25-year-old vines grown on Kimmeridgian-period clay-limestone slopes. Careful green pruning is practiced, as are manual harvests. Wine certified organic and biodynamic by DEMETER. The vinifications are as respectful as possible, with grapes placed in vats for 10 days.
