|Les Faverelles 2018 Vezelay AOC||Login||—||In Stock|
Formerly a bookseller in Paris for 20 years, Patrick Bringer now lives in the north Burgundian village of Asquins where his wife Isabelle Georgelin is also the mayor. Together, they farm 6 hectares of vines in the Vézelay appellation, an even split of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with a small amount of the ancient grape César for blending.
Patrick is very committed to biodynamic viticulture, and they were also recently Ecocert certified. Not only do they work organically, but the village Asquins is also certified organic, which means no chemicals or pesticides are allowed in the village at all.
Grapes are manually harvested. The wines are fermented with indigenous yeast, not chaptalized or filtered, and aged for 10-12 months in old oak. The cool climate of the region means that even in warmer vintages like 2009 the Bringer’s still make wines that are merely 12.5% in alcohol, retaining all freshness and delicacy that the Yonne has to offer.
