Maison Francois Ducrot

"Auguste" Vin de France 2021

$20
This is a fun and funky blend of organically grown Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris from the Languedoc. After 15 days fermenting on its skins, the wine is aged in steel tanks to preserve its fresh, fruity profile. Notes of apricot, honeysuckle, and fresh citrus and a smooth, food-friendly texture help make this wine a great partner for cheese and charcuterie, seafood, grilled white meats, veggies and more. Serve with a slight chill!

Maison Francois Ducrot

François Ducrot is widely acclaimed as a “vine magician.” Originally from Burgundy, he studied oenology at the Institut de la Vigne et du Vin in Dijon and soon after started working as the winemaker for Domaine Enclos de la Croix, in Lansargues. A couple of years ago, Durcot realized that several talented local organic farmers in Aspiran, a 45-minute drive west of Montpellier, were selling their grapes to co-ops to be mixed with other grapes in the production of bulk wine. François decided to buy these grapes and create a negociant project that showcases vibrant wines from an all-but-unknown terroir of Languedoc. The vision: create beautiful wine from cleaner soils, where trees, wild animals, vines, and families could live in harmony.
