Wine Pick #2
GR Vins A.D.N. Patrimonio Rouge 2016
Patrimonio, Corsica, France
GR Vins is the ambitious project of David Risoul and Emmanuel Gagnepain, Oenologists from the Southern Rhône Valley. In 2014, after years of working with several talented winegrowers, they embarked on the crazy adventure of winemaking. Today, they buy grapes from some of the best organically farmed sites from a few of their top producers in different regions. Each new offering comes from a singular source where David and Emmanuel work closely with the growers, provide barrels and other tools, and check in on the wine as it finishes in the cellars. This selection process and hyper localization of the winemaking creates a true reflection of the terroir, no matter where they are in France.
