2021 John Almansa 'Zou Mai' Red Blend
Cinsault/Grenache Blend, Languedoc
Zou Mai translates to 'Come on!'
John is a punk who plays in bands, fights for social change, tends two hectares of a polyculture farm (sheep, bees, grapes...), makes crazy eau de vie... all without posting any of it on ~the internet~. He makes wine for literally everyone (in terms of price and style), and always will. He's a comrade through and through. We love him as much as you do. John worked on various vineyards prior to establishing his own in 2015, in the Gard region of Languedoc and additionally in Cévennes. The Gard fruit are typically ripe whereas 350 meters up in altitude, the Cévennes fruit are typically fresher. John borrows our friend Philippe Pibarot’s facilities to vinify his grapes. All labor is manual with minimal intervention.
