Striking French rosé. Fun and aromatic.
Producer: Antonin Azzoni
Antonin Azzoni has had the difficult task of continuing the 'domaine' that his father Gilles created without compromising the style or quality of the wines. Antonin focuses on winemaking under the format of 'Negoce' which consists of buying grapes from neighboring winegrowers. Grapes that, of course, always come from organic vineyards and that he vinifies naturally without any additives.
To fully understand what this Domaine is today, it is essential to talk about his father Gilles Azzoni. He grew up on the Parisian periphery, studied viticulture (1976-77) and worked in different wineries in the south of France until he settled here in 1983. He rented this farm and the 6 hectares of vineyard that surround it at the entrance to the village of St. Maurice d'Ibi, in the south of the Ardeche. The name of the farm, Mas de La Bégude, refers us to its past when horses and other farm animals could access drinking water given the easy access to the river between the bridge and the farm. For 30 years Gilles made his wines here, with some vineyards that he transformed into organic (1990-97). He also had the influence and support of Gerald Oustric, a resident of the Ardeche, and in the year 2000 he decided to stop using sulfur, which caused his automatic and definitive withdrawal from the Appeal, making him one of the benchmarks in the area in the elaboration of natural wines. In recent years the baton was passed on to his son Antonin until in 2014 they reached an agreement with Samuel Boulay to transfer most of the vineyard, part of the house and a small part of the old winery located in the basement of the farm, by the river. From then on the Azzoni
They started with the 'business' and in 2018 Gilles withdrew permanently, leaving the witness to Antonin and his wife Dorothee. Gilles has moved to another house, a few meters away, and conserves 1 Ha of vineyard with which he plans to continue having fun making wines.
Antonin buys the grapes from friendly and well-known winegrowers such as Domaine Ozil, Vincent Fargier (partner of Les Deux Terres) or Samuel Boulay himself, who sells them a good part of the production of his old vineyards.
Vinification is always totally natural, without temperature controls, without added sulphites, or any other additive.
For his vinifications he uses a wooden vaslin press from the 60s without electricity. The whites go directly to the press and the reds are macerated and fermented in 4 large steel tanks. Afterwards, they are aged for about 6 months in slightly smaller fiber tanks, 500 liters, which are easier to move.
to gain space. They never go through the barrel. The average annual production is 30,000 bots. and their wines are sold at very reasonable prices, how could it be otherwise. Their goal is to make wines extremely accessible in every way: easy to buy and easy to drink.

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.
