Deep as a passionate embrace, dense as the night...
Powerful - Complex
Les Amants de la Vigneronne
The name of their estate thumbs its nose at the self-righteous and the macho. Just think about it: Les Amants de la Vigneronne! (The (lady) Winemaker’s Lovers). It’s audacity mixed with fun, just like their wines: silky as a satin sheet, deep as a passionate embrace, dense as the night. Far from cheap marketing, Régine and Christian Godefroid have given their cuvée a particular stamp, with deliberately sensual names, but to tell the truth, all that is almost superfluous, as the intoxication is firstly in the bottle. To put it in more practical terms: Les Amants de la Vigneronne is eight hectares of vines run in line with the principles of organic agriculture, on the schist soil so typical of the Faugères appellation (Languedoc). Sadly, Les Amants de la Vigneronne are mourning the loss of Christian Godefroid who passed away at the end of 2017.
Corps et âme ('Heart and Soul')
Popsss offers you this cuvée exclusively, as the winemakers do not have a distributor in Belgium. Beware however: our stock is limited.
On the estate, the grapes are harvested manually and the yield is limited (in this case, 20 hl/ha). This wine undergoes long maceration with regular pigeage and significant maturing (in this case, 18 months in tuns).
Dark red robe.
Pencil lead nose with fruity and spicy hints.
Incomparably intense in the mouth, but with silky tannins. Aromas of pepper and spices instantly evoking travel. Persistent finish.
The winemaker’s tip: very flavoursome cuisine or... no cuisine at all.
16-17°C. Decant when young.
In the 2014 range, this is our absolute favourite.
