Les Trois Petiotes, Côtes-De-Bourg

£30.00

A very unique blend for Bordeaux (with so much Malbec), this is a beautifully hand-crafted wine

Valérie Godelu’s winemaking story began in the early 2000s when she and her husband Denis were living in Paris. At the time they worked for big companies in the banking and business sectors but having a long-standing love affair with wine, they decided to further their knowledge by enrolling on oenology courses (Beaune) sent to them by mail over four years.

After the birth of their second daughter, they relocated to Bordeaux. They now have three daughters (Les Trois Petiotes means three young girls in French patois) and three hectares of vines. Valérie is a very good cook, and she is always guided by how wine interacts with food, its sapidity and freshness is crucial. She is not a fan of most Bordeaux wines as she finds them “overpowering, flabby, oaky, lacking freshness, linear, boring, and don’t change much in the glass hours after being opened!”

This is a beautiful, hand-crafted wine made biodynamically from just 3 hectares of vines. Aged in 1-3 year old barrels, it has been very sensitively and gently extracted, giving aromas of blackcurrants, violet, menthol and cooked prunes. It is ripe but supple and very silky on the palate, with perfect acidity and long finish with a lot of freshness. Minimal sulphur.
