Any one who has read me knows that I've got a crush on Morgon. In fact, it's beyond affair and has blossomed into a relationship of depth and intensity. Some crushes are like that. On a brilliant morning in a rain soaked week, Eric Texier, the Rhonester who lives in Charnay, a 40 minute drive from where the Vin Nature movement touched down, headed off for a damned good triple header: Lapierre, Chanudet & Foillard. (sorry about the upside down pictures, I have no idea what's going on with my iphone) Seen in Lapierre's cellar In Lapierre's vines something the BATF won't allow us to do A dandy idea Chanudet, the anarchist Genevieve's dad, was the farmer who never succumbed to the chemicals and yeasts in the first place. On to dinner and tasting with Jean & Agnes Foillard. Agnes is a fantastic cook, and she sure knows how to pick cheese. The next morning I said goodbye to the device that Eric tests sulfur on. though Eric isn't really biodynamic, there is a 'dynamizer.' And of course I couldn't leave without stopping in to see the DuBouef of Charnay, Jean-Paul Brun's, new vineyard. Watch this video for his explanation. Here is Eric talking about his flowworm and his vineyard based on Fukuoka.
