100% Cinsault from 80-year old vines located on silica-rich soils. Carbonic vinification in cement for 6 hours, followed by aging in Burgundian barriques for 5 months. All made in a simple and essential way, so that Le P'tit Bonhomme can interpret the terroir from which it was born.
Ugo Lestelle is a young producer from Languedoc who already has a solid reputation in the world of international wine. After wandering in different areas of southern France, he decides to settle permanently in Saint-Chinian, restoring an old sheepfold at 550 meters above sea level: he was convinced by the clayey-limestone soils of this area with a very large percentage of silicon. In 2015, he began his adventure with only two hectares of property: today there are 7 hectares, but the style and philosophy with which he works his wines, which must be at all natural costs, have remained unchanged. It works with native vines of the area such as grenache, carignan, aramon, syrah, and terret, making them with carbonic maceration in whole bunches and aging in small barrels. The choice of wood changes with each of his wines. A very young person to keep an eye on.
