1 X 750ml bottle
Le Bout du Monde is located in a new burgeoning hotspot of natural winemakers centered around the tiny village of la Tour de France. All of these winemakers are known for working with carbonic maceration and this winemaker, Edouard Lafitte, was one of the first, founding his vineyard in 1995. The grapes are hand harvested and fermented whole cluster at low temperature in fiberglass tanks for about 15 days. No pigeage or pumping over is performed, and the wine is unfiltered and unfined.
