A comparatively weighty wine by Axel’s standard (one which still comes in at a very, very reasonable 12.5%) that still shows his remarkable lightness of touch. He’s helped by this plot of Grenache being planted on a north-facing slope which keeps the fruit out of most of the day’s warmest sunshine. A meditative wine.

Axel Prüfer

Axel Prüfer’s lightness of touch means that, on tasting, it is almost impossible to believe that  wines of such energy and freshness come from the often drought-afflicted hills of his adopted home in the Languedoc. Axel works primarily with cinsault planted amongst dense forest and over a dazzling array of quartz and granite soils, and his bottles feel like they have years ahead of them.
