Certified organic since 1975, Domaine de l’Ecu is one of France’s oldest certified organic wine estates, was certified biodynamic in 1998 and has been making stunning wines for over 40 years. This is a mix of red and white, selection of single varietal wines, sourced from certified organic and biodynamic fruit, that are aged in terra cotta amphora and bottled without any added sulfites. Why amphora? Amphora are made of the earth, and therefore the perfect medium for working as close to the earth and naturally as possible. Fred believes amphora are the natural extension for the domaine and allows for a more pure expression of the terroir without any outside interference. In addition, ageing in amphora harmonizes the texture, softening tannins and giving a wine, even when young, structured and age-worthy, a rounded, velvety mouthfeel. These wines are as delicious as they are beautiful to look at!
