Finesse, elegance and length, rolled up in a dark red fruit cover. This wine has an intense color and a bouquet of red fruits. A super juicy and complex wine. You can age this wine, but is that what you really want? Just too delicious! Antoine from La Petie Odysee only produces a few bottles a year.

Furie comes from a vineyard between the ages of 20 and 45 years. All grape varieties are fermented separately. First Abouriou, short maceration (3 days) whole grapes. Merlot at 3 weeks of maceration and then the Cabernet Sauvignon is harvested later in October, using the same method as for Merlot. The curvée arises after 10 months of maturation (70 % in old barrels). Of course, all yeasts are natural.

Grapes:
52% Merlot, 22% Abourjout, Cabernet Sauvignon 26% 

Vinification: Biodynamically and organically practiced with a penchant for soil protection. No heavy tillage / weeding or synthetic products in the vineyards. Local yeasts, no fining or filtering, minimal SO2 when bottling.

La Petite Odyssée Antoine is a young winemaker from the south of France. Out of conviction, he switched directly to organic and biodynamic cultivation. He grows Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Chardonnay, as well as Abouriou, a rare local grape variety.
