La Coulee D'Ambrosia, Les Joues Rouges, Chene, 2013

This unusually cheeky wink to basic Anjou red sits outside the appellation as Jean Francois Chene opted out when asked to add sulphur. Certified organic since 2005, Chene is well down the road to biodynamism and it’s so off centre that we felt compelled to run with it. The wine is made from 60 year old Cabernet Franc vines and whole bunch fermented, at low temperature, to bring the fruit to the fore. It’s clean but cloudy – meaning the fruit is squeaky but the wines appearance is the antithesis of the over filtered products you find on the high street – and full of strawberries and summer fruits backed up with a crunchy apple-like acidity.
