2019 Pinard et Filles 'A Ciel Ouvert'

$68.00

Region: Québec, Canada 

Variety: Frontenac Blanc

Farming: Organic

"Pioneering a bright-eyed wine crusade within the extreme terroir of Quebéc, Frédéric Simon and his wife Catherine Bélanger tend to their 1.5ha winery with resolute sincerity and an evolving sense of place.

Discovery drives the work that they do here, with relatively new plantings of vitis vinifera such as Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Gamay, Cabernet Franc, Dornfelder, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Savagnin (uncommon to the area due to arduous growing conditions). All vines are tended to organically, with minimal alterations in the cellar, leading Frédéric to a series of challenges to consider when combating the extreme cold of winter and inevitable frosts of spring." — Zev Rovine

"Direct pressing of white Frontenac, natural fermentation, vinification and aging on lees in barrels without topping up for 12 months. Bottled without fining or filtration, no added sulphur. Jura-style oxidative wine with lots of freshness." — Frêdéric and Catherine
