Vincent and Marie Tricot, a dynamic husband and wife team, embarked on their natural winemaking journey in the picturesque village of Orcet, Auvergne, after being deeply influenced by natural wine pioneers in Beaujolais during the 1990s. Starting with less than 5 hectares of venerable vines, they have since expanded by an additional 6 hectares, cultivating Pinot Noir, Gamay, and Muscat with rigorous natural methods and no added sulfites. Their commitment to biodynamic principles shines through in their wines, characterized by vibrant energy and genuine charm. Among their creations is a delightful Gamay from a small plot on volcanic and limestone soils, offering a captivating blend of crunchy apple berries, cloves, morello cherries, black currant chutney, wild peppermint, and candied olives, all produced without fining, filtration, or added SO2. This joyous red exemplifies the Tricots' mastery of natural winemaking.
