Braucol (aka Fer Savadou) half whole cluster semi-carbonic, half destemmed traditional vinification. Low yields, and ageing only in cement tank with no filtration begets a vibrant, red fruited, sappy wine with a crunchy, juicy and charmingly fresh personality and also a twist of something herbaceous, dark, inky and spicy to close. Was once labelled Bro'cool, as in 'Bro' for brothers (Florent and Romain).
