Southwestern France's answer to Vinho Verde. This is 100% Loin de L'Oeil from organic vineyards just north of Toulouse bottled with a little residual CO2 (most producers add extra, but Philemon keeps it natural) and just a drop of sulfur at bottling. Mineral, citrusy, ever-so-slightly funky wine with a zippy acidity that almost feels effervescent.

Domaine Philemon is located in Villeneuve-sur-Vere, a small village on the Vere river in between Albi and Cordes in the northeast quadrant of the Gaillac appellation. The Vieules family have had a vineyard in Villeneuve since 1804. Today the vineyard is run by Mathieu Vieules, who grows wheat, sunflowers, and grapes in equal proportions, all farmed organically.
