Certified biodynamic Bordeaux is on the up! More and more producers are employing methods in tandem with Mother Nature but seeing bottled aged examples at this price is quite a revelation!
Located near to Fronsac, Château La Hase is a single hectare of vines that are farmed organically and biodynamically - hence the nifty foil embossed moon cycle on the label.
The winery’s owner Jean-Yves Millaire uses a traditional plough rather than weed killers, shuns pesticides and nasty chemicals and picks the grapes by hand - all in all it’s a terrific tipple made with love both for the wine and the local ecology.
The parcel is named 'La Hase' meaning a female hare in honour of M. Millare's grandfather, who initiated him in the art of hunting.
100% Merlot and aged in French oak for 12 months - though the wine shows great purity of fruit and freshness. Some nice developed flavours emerging too so you could lay it down for a year or two for sure. Drinking brilliantly now though!
