Juicy - Vibrant - Kirsch - Elegant

Each year L`Hurluberlu has its own identity and it seems to be better each year. Dark and vivid purple, fresh and bright with cherry kirsch flavours; lots of dark fruits that are underpinned with a savoury, minerally character. The way Sebastien makes this wine allows him no need for sulphur, instead using carbon dioxide to protect the grapes. He leaves the bunches on skins for 25 days and has free run juice at the bottom of his tank to start the fermentation process. All this means is that Sebastien produces a wine that is bright and fresh.

Sebastien David
Producer Profile Sebastien David
Sebastien David is a jovial sort of chap. Cabernet Franc is his thing and he really is very good at it. He’s based in Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil in the heart of the Loire. He makes use of interesting vessels for maturation, looking back to his family past by utilising clay amphorae and also being rather forward thinking with his use of giant concrete eggs during fermentation. Interestingly, he uses exactly the same grapes to make all three of his cuvees and the only difference are in winemaking technique, you would never tell after tasting his l’Hurluberlu and Kezako side by side!
