Crushed and Cured

Domaine Capmartin, Pimpant, IGP Côtes de Gascogne, France, 2022


This cuvée, unfiltered, unfined and without added sulphite, is as natural as they come and can present a slight deposit in the bottle. Light, fresh with mouthwatering juicy red fruits.

Under the skilled and insightful guidance of Simon Capmartin, his Madiran and Pacherenc de Vic-Bil Domaine has kicked this most traditional of appellations into a new, more progressive age.

After destemming, the grapes are allowed to go through the process of carbonic maceration, with a natural fermentation using only native yeasts. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation as well as 6 months of ageing is carried out in stainless steel tank. This natural process of winemaking results in a wine low in sulphites by the time it is bottled.
