About This Wine

  • WINEMAKER

    "A Contre Courant" is made with the grapes from the parcels of Carignan and Grenache the oldest of my vineyard. But what makes this wine an exceptional wine is its aging "sous voile" for 4 years. The sous voile wines are characterized by the spontaneous development of yeas forming a veil on the surface of the wine in contact with the ambient air (during its barrel aging phase). This practice, which is unusual for wine due to the risk of acetic prickliness when stored in unfilled containers, gives it specific organoleptic analytical characteristics (fig, tobacco, cherry confit, and a very long mouthfeel). Among the very rare wines raised in this way we know in particular the yellow wines of the Jura, but no red wine. Indeed, by practicing this breeding on a red wine, I go against modernized standardized oenology, hence the name of this wine, "against the current" established standards and "gustatively correct".
