Male Tears NV

£30.00

 Fresh, fruity, floral, and very mineral rich, with a salty finish, as you would expect from tears

Part of Les Cuvées Militantes from Fleur Godart’s Vin et Volailles – a series of wines to take a stance on sexism, racism and homophobia. The label for this wine is illustrated by Justine Saint-Lô, and is inspired by Rembrandt’s Christ on the Cross and Van Gogh’s The Starry Night. It is explained thus, “Our poor little feverish man, comfortably seated on his floating mattress with sunglasses and glass in hand, is crying because his wine is getting warmer! The rest of the world may well be drowning around him, he doesn’t realize it and even feeds the flow with his own tears.”

The fruit comes from vines with an average age of 30-50 years old. The fruit is from a mixture of the 2019 and 2020 vintages and was purchased from Domaine Goepp in Alsace. The wine is elaborated by ‘Jeux des Vins’ (Julien Albertus’ négoce project). The grapes are direct pressed and processed in stainless steel tanks. The wine is unfined, unfiltered and no sulphites were added.

Crunchy white pear, lime zest, dried sage, flint and smoky dandelion. The wine is fresh and aromatic with a real herbal quality. This batch is made with no skin contact and with the addition of Sylvaner giving the wine a more elegant mineral character.
