Francois Ducrot Bite into Life Blanc

Francois Ducrot Bite into Life Blanc

Francois Ducrot is a vine magician, born and raised in Burgundy. After graduating in 2006 as a trained oenologist at the Institut de la Vigne et du Vin in Dijon, he started as Maitre de Chai (master of the cellar) for Domaine Enclos de la Croix, in Lansargues. Although the vineyard had used organic farming techniques since the early ‘80s, through his environmental philosophy, Francois pushed the Domaine to officially obtain the Organic certification. In 2011 they reached this goal under his tenure. He then went on to modify the vinification process to remove the use of all animal based products during winemaking and limit the addition of sulphites as much as possible. Today, these same practices are a part of Maison Francois Ducrot’s mantra.

All their wines are organic, vegan, low or free of sulphites and as natural as possible. Not just to show off the varietals and terroir, but also what nature has to offer when in the hands of a skilled artisan winemaker... Less is often more, which is proven in the final product!

The vineyard consists of twenty-three hectares of single vineyard blocks, passed down through generations into eight separate parcels. Here he dreamed of a domain attached to its roots and inspired by a responsible and sustainable future. Francois runs the estate with his daughter Agathe who shares his ethos. Their vision was to make wines from cleaner soils, where trees, wild animals, grape vines and families could live together in harmony.

This collection ‘Les Moutons’ is named after their favourite natural weedkiller… SHEEEEEP!

Organic, Vegan Friendly, Low Sulphites & Sustainable Agriculture

Vinification

All the grapes for this wonderful white are carefully selected and there is no use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. All selections are from the area of Aspiran, Hrault which is dominated by stones with a certain depth with the presence of limestone.

Tasting Notes

Typical of the Languedoc, Grenache Blanc is a varietal that really empowers us with its floralality and fruitiness. The freshness is preserved with a good acidity and lovely aromas. Suave floral notes of rose and peony combine with some light fennel. Lively with a medium acidity and seductive palate with layers of ripe pear, apricot, jasmine and magnolia freshness.

Drink as an aperitif, with starters, chicken/pork, fish, seafood (fresh or grilled) and fresh cheese like goat cheese.
