'Les Indigènes' is sourced from a small vineyard that was co-planted with a wide variety of both red and white grapes. Planted around 200 years ago, these vines were untouched by phylloxera, a microscopic insect that practically destroyed all the world's vineyards in the late 1800s. This field blend was co-fermented in old oak foudres using indigenous yeasts without temperature control and was bottled unfined and unfiltered. This is a juicy and fruity yet rustic style with earthy and herbal notes of bay leaf, allspice, and peppercorns.
