Pierre Bourlier
Vaille Que Vaille, 2019

Grower: Pierre Bourlier
Region: Ardeche, France
Grape Varieties: Gamay
Viticulture: Nature & Progrès
Size: 75cl bottle

After working with Ardeche greats Gilles Azzoni and Domaine des Miquettes, Piere Bourlier found himself a humble site of just 1.5ha of vines to settle in northern Ardeche, just a stone's throw from Saint Joseph. His vines are situated on a steep slope planted in terrace, facing the Doux valley. And while he's looking to expand his production, for now we're enchanted with this humble production of lovely wines. A very fine tannin punctuates the lightweight, lifted and delicate old-vine gamay presented in Vaille que Vaille. Just a touch of bramble seeps in to add intrigue to the purity of fruit.
