The Bordeaux wine region doesn't feature many natural winemakers, to say the least. There might be plenty of reasons for this situation (ranging from yearly rainfall, to mentalities, to economics) but what matters to us is that in the middle of this historic and prestigious wine region Château Lamery, featuring Jacques Broustet and his wines, exists: 100% natural, both in the vineyard and in the cellar, and 100% authentic.
Jacques follows the principles of organic and biodynamic cultivation of the grapes, plays music to his vines and harvest his grapes by hand. But as with every good natural winemaker, what matters at least as much as what he does, is what he doesn't do: Once the wine is in the old oak barrels of Château Lamery, they stay there for 2 years, untouched: No topping, no racking, no fining, no filtration, no sulfites added. Just giving the wine its most precious ingredient: Time.
With this "Autrement" cuvée, Château Lamery is thus offering us the unique opportunity to enjoy the qualities of true Bordeaux wines, unadulterated, pure, and -let's face it- absolutely gorgeous. Forget about massive structures, coarse texture, or bitter aftertaste, this 2014 vintage of the Autrement cuvée is full-bodied yet supple, complex yet juicy, tannic yet fresh. A great Bordeaux wine, like no others, or to say it in French: "Autrement".
As with all wines you really love, you will enjoy Autrement under any circumstances, as a stand-alone apéritif or throughout a meal. However, due to its rich and tannic structure, you and your guests might find this wine particularly enjoyable with poultry and game, red meat (grilled or in sauce) as well as with a vaste range of mushrooms and cheeses.
Autrement 2014 doesn't like to be drunk too cold, it inhibits the wine and stresses the acidity too much. We advise to serve it around 16 to 18°C.
Grape varieties: Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec
