This comes from Laurent Saillard, the ex-chef from NYC’s Ici, one of the first natural wine bars. 100% gamay from 38-year-old vines. A whole-bunches (carbonic maceration) in an oxygen-free environment. Aged half in stainless steel and half old vats for 6 months. Nothing fancy, just effortlessly good. The world needs more of this.
While Dom’s pack does naturally lean towards French, he has also included two new curious South Australian numbers that he has found particularly inspiring. Want to try before you buy? Head in to La Buvette, if you’re lucky enough to live in Adelaide, of course, where the majority of the wines in this pack is available over the bar.
The wines included in the Dom Lentz (La Buvette) pack are:
