3 x Courtois
The Courtois family is a trailblazer when it comes to natural wine in Loire. Claude Courtois has been a pioneer in biodiversity and self-sufficiency in wine production for a lifetime and his sons Etienne and Julien carry on this tradition with convincing results. This tasting box offers three great wines that should be on the curriculum for every wine enthusiast but are unfortunately produced in very small quantities: Claude’s darling “Racines”, which is a field blend of more than 30 different grape varieties. Etienne’s “Quartz”, which completely redefines what to expect from Sauvignon Blanc. And finally, Julien’s “Ancestral” where depth, concentration and ferocity go hand in hand with an enormous drinkability.
