Most of you should be already familiar with the legend of the natural wine movement from Auvergne. A former computer scientist (?), Patrick Bouju decided to throw the keyboard into oblivion (no connection with TES4) and replace it with farming equipment in 2003.
Domaine de La Bohème is his winery in Auvergne, located at an average altitude of 500 meters, spread over the best terroirs around his home that he could find: Egliseneuve-près-Billom, Billom, Lempdes, le Puy d’Anzelle, Corent. He cultivates old Gamay grape varieties from Auvergne (Gamay de Bouze, Gamay Fréau, Milefleurien). With an average age of a hundred years (some are pre-phylloxera), the roots draw deeply from the soil (basalt, limestone, clay, pozzolan) to give the wines of Domaine de la Bohème a unique character. To highlight the specificity of each terroir, Patrick vinifies his parcels separately.
Patrick Bouju allows himself a little copper and sulfur and uses plant preparations (nettle, horsetail, comfrey, etc.) to prevent possible diseases. In the cellar, he uses no chemicals. There is no usage of SO2 during vinification or bottling.

What a nice rosé petnat, it’s among my favourite ones. A lovely bouquet of red flowers, barberry candy, and chausson aux pommes (red!). It seems not complex, but it is easy to fall in love with this fruit of good quality and a refreshing mouthfeel. Delicious.

Wine #1 on Rose Petals Party Vol. 2.
Do you think it’s a bottle of Festejar? But in fact, it’s a fizzy feast (hehe) of barberry candy, red flowers and chausson aux pommes. Juicy, fruity and quaffable. Among my favourite petnats of the season. If only the price was lower…

Quaffable and juicy. Barberry candy, red flowers and chausson aux pommes. Give me Sunday, a few bottles of this wine and leave me in the woods.
