Hirofumi Shoji spent many years working for one of our favourite producers in Burgundy, Frederic Cossard, before moving to the south of France with his wife Rie a couple of years ago. Given the level of precision and finesse on display here, it is crazy to think that this is the first wine they have ever made out on their own. It is from a special place, a remote vineyard high up in the mountains above Collioure, where old bush vines of Grenache are planted over rocky soils of granite and schist, producing a wine full of complexity and contradiction. Dark and deep, with a silken texture and real nuance, it wows with each and every sip.

Rie et Hirofumi Shoji

It is hard to be believe that Rie and Hirofumi’s first harvest of Pedres Blanques was just a couple of years ago, such is the level of finesse found in the wines and the cult status they have already attained. The two spent years working in Burgundy, Hirofumi with the legendary Frederic Cossard, before finding an incredible vineyard of Grenache planted over schist in the hills above Collioure. Fittingly, their wines display a level of finesse rarely found this far south.
