Vin de Jardin '20

Pioneering a bright-eyed wine crusade within the extreme terroir of Quebéc, Frédéric Simon and his wife Catherine Bélanger tend to their 1.50 hectare winery with resolute sincerity and an evolving sense of place. Discovery drives the work that they do here, with relatively new plantings of vitis vinifera such as Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Gamay, Cabernet Franc, Dornfelder, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Savagnin (uncommon to the area due to arduous growing conditions). All vines are tended to organically, with minimal alterations in the cellar, leading Frédéric to a series of challenges to consider when combating the extreme cold of winter and inevitable frosts of spring. 

Here everything is allowed (and tried) with the Frontenac! Natural fermentation in whole bunches (semi-carbonic) for a part; white, gray and black in equal parts. Direct press for the Frontenac Noir, natural fermentation in amphora for another part and destemmed and crushed for the rest. Bottling without fining or filtration, nor added sulfur.

Red wine for the garden – or even a swimming pool! - like a rosé in the skin of a red, all in freshness and fruit. Serve chilled and drink in large sips!
