In some ways it’s grainy and rugged. In other ways it’s effortless. The complexity angle is the effortless bit. It has good oomph and tannin, coffee bean notes, clovey/peppery nuances and a core built around roasted cherry and hazelnut. It’s not profound but it’s immaculate and characterful. I’m 92/100 in base quality terms but I’m a point or two higher on sheer enjoyment. I mean, really, this is quite lovely. Drink: 2020-2027.

So far ahead of the organics game was Laurent's father Maurice, he gained the nickname of Maurice le Fou (Crazy Maurice) when he converted the family's mixed fruit farm over 40 years ago. All that hard work has paid off for his son, and current generation winemaker Laurent Combier. After a short hiatus away from the family farm studying oenology and working at some fancy wineries Laurent returned full of knowledge and gusto, and big decisions were made to pull their grapes from the local co-op and focus on Domaine Combier. Since those important years, Domaine Combier has grown quite a following for their organic, and more importantly, well made wines.
