What's So Special: In 2015, chateau owner Bertrand Gourdou was searching through an old desk when he came across a label that his grandfather had made in the early 1970's; that wine was called "Le pot-de-vin" which, in French, translates to "the bribe", which for that era was an audacious play on words for a wine label! This label inspired Bertrand to make a simple, natural wine: biodynamically grown fruit, fermented with native yeast and with a negligible dose of SO2, made in concrete tanks built by his grandfather. The word "pot" also references the old-style bottle shape.

Tastes Like: Most of this estate's production is red, but they have a small number of Chardonnay vines planted too, which yield this succulent, freshly styled wine. Grown in the southern sun and vinified in concrete vats (no oak) at 13.7% alcohol, this wine is astonishingly bright and quenching with aromas of white flowers, a light tropical fruit middle, and a crisp-creamy finish.

Pairs With: Steamed vegetables, fresh fish, coque au vin.
