Available for Same Day Delivery (or Pickup) in Manhattan.
In Aix-en-Provence you will find a warm and inviting couple, Karina and Guillaume Lefèvre. They grow or raise all the food they eat on their own land. Their farming is all organic and biodynamic, and they grow all our favorite Provençal grapes, including Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvèdre. They hand-harvest every grape from their 29 hectares and add just a bit of S02 during vinification. Their Charbonnières is a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah, from young vines, and it is a pure joy to drink. Silky, supple and slightly herbaceous, there's something about this wine that reminds us of Pfifferling's rare cuvées.
