The Wine: La Miette
This is traditionally a cuvée made in the old 'clairet' style of light red color often with a little flavor and aromatics of a certain% of white wine mixed in the bottling; however, this year it is purely Pinot Noir and Gamay that carry a definitely ethereal look in their lightness (despite the absence of any% white wine). From Gregoire Perron de La Combe aux Rêves that cultivated 2.5 hectares of empty spaces in Journans, Bugey, Francia.
Vinification: A blend of 65% Pinot Noir and 35% Gamay harvested by hand from vines grown primarily on Jurassic limestone soils. 1/3 of the wine is macerated for 6 months in qvevri, while the remaining 2/3 macerates for only 8 days before being raised for 6 months in 225L oak barrels. Bottled without clarification, without filtering without additional SO2. 12,5% ABV
The producer: Gregoire Perron
Gregoire Perron started this project in 2009 with just half a hectare of vineyard and a lot of enthusiasm. Before he worked for 15 years for other wineries but this time it was his project and he wanted to take it to the limit of natural production, so he first had to recover the vineyards from a past full of chemicals. He settled with the family in an old house with a cellar from the 17th century in the small village of Journans, about 10 km south-east of Bourg-en-Bresse, in the heart of Bugey, between the Jura, Savoy and the Beaujolais.
Today its vineyards total just 2.5 hectares and are a small orchard a few meters from the winery, just 5 minutes walking through this "valley of dreams" (combe aux reves). The vines are sloping at an altitude of 280-430 meters with south, south-west exposure, just in front of Morgon.
The soils are clay-calcareous and their age reaches 60 years. They are divided into 2 almost contiguous plots: one planted in the 60s with Gamay and Mondeuse, which he had to convert to organic, and a younger one planted by him in 2016 with traditional white grapes, Jacquere and Altesse. In the vineyard all the work is manual, although after the harvest it is the sheep who are in charge of cutting the grass and fertilizing the land until spring.
The last few years have experienced enormous climatic difficulties. In 2016 it was the downy mildew and the Suzukii fly, and in 2017 a frost that left him with just 1,200 liters in 2 Ha. Gregoire relies on the 'Negoce' wines, Foudre d'Escampette, in order to survive and this allows him even greater creative freedom, with other varieties,
vinifications and styles. All their wines are absolutely natural, without the addition of sulfur or any other additive at any stage of production. The total annual production is around 6,000 bottles.

What is natural wine
Natural winemaking has become a movement akin to a revolution, a nemesis of the industrialization and homogenization of wine in the last three decades. Natural winemakers are at the forefront of this movement, rejecting industrial winemaking techniques and the excessive use of pesticides, fungicides, herbicides or fertilizers in the vineyard. Perhaps even more importantly, natural wine should be seen as an agricultural product where agriculture is an essential part. Agricultural conditions, labor rights, sustainability and ethical practices throughout the supply chain are now at the center of the natural wine discourse.
Why should you try natural wine?
Natural wine is probably the most fascinating wine on the market. Discovering natural wines is made even more exciting by the fact that each vintage is different and has a different flavor. The non-interventionist winemaking approach, together with the best organic and biodynamic practices in the vineyards, give wines of unique character.

Natural wine is a type of wine made in small batches from organic or biodynamic grapes harvested by hand with minimal intervention in the cellar. Industrial yeast is not added to trigger fermentation or add a particular flavor to a natural wine; the fermentation process is not controlled with temperature control devices.Read more...
Biodynamic wine is a wine made from grapes grown biodynamically. Biodynamic agriculture is a holistic approach to agriculture, which conceives of the farm as a living organism and is based on anthroposophy, a philosophy founded in the early 1920s by the Austrian philosopher and scientist Dr. Rudolf Steiner.Read more...
Organic wine is wine made from organically grown grapes. Organic farming is a type of farming alternative to conventional farming and similar to biodynamic farming, which focuses on sustainability. Organic farmers do not use fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, etc.Read more...
Vegan wine is a wine made without using animal products during the clarification phase. Before bottling the wine, it is usually clarified and filtered to separate and eliminate the solid matter from the liquid matter. This can be achieved by using animal-derived clarifying agents, such as egg whites and casein.Read more...
low sulfite wine
Low sulfite wine is a type of wine with a lower sulfur dioxide content than conventionally made wines, where little or no sulfur dioxide is added to the wine. This does not mean that the wine does not contain sulfites. During fermentation, a small amount of sulfur dioxide is released into the wine as a form of natural preservative.Read more...
