Red and dark cherry aromas on the nose with hints of spice. Fruity yet earthy on a lively and fresh palate. The feel is juicy and spicy with a good tannic structure, interesting texture and length. Smoky finish. Very low in alcohol. Les Champs Libres is a partnership between Rene-Jean Dard (from Dard & Ribo: famous producer of St. Joseph, Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, etc...) and Herve Souhaut (Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet and Sainte Epine)
Grape Varieties: Syrah and Gamay
Producer: René-Jean Dard and Hervé Souhaut
Les Champs Libres is a small négociant run by René-Jean Dard and Hervé Souhaut. The grapes are sourced from organically tended vineyards, and vinified without manipulation or intervention.
LES CHAMPS LIBRES, DARD ET SOUHAUT, Ardèche – Organic No lard-di-da numbers these but ‘umble natural wines co-scripted by the René Jean Dard and Hervé Souhaut. The proof is in the cheerful drinking. The white Lard is a choice Grenache Blanc whilst the red is a chillable and eminently gluggable blend of Gamay and Syrah weighing in at a slimming 11.8%. The former is golden-yellow and vinous; fleshy fruits dominate the nose and mouth, in particular, poached pears and roasted pineapple. The finish is dry, waxy and spicy. The red effortlessly combines frivolity (imagine just crushed red grape juice) and cheeky terroir notes of black olives and pepper. The Foufoune strips off and reveals those beautifully eloquent primary Syrah aromas: sweet violets, orange blossom, juicy black olives and silky blueberry fruit mingled in the glass. In terms of drinkability let’s just say that the gradient of the glass projecting the wine down one’s throat steepens appreciably.
