Eco-friendly

Eco-friendly

Eco-Friendly recognises wines that have come from growers who, although not members of any ‘organic’ or ‘bio-dynamic’ association, strongly believe in growing grapes and making wines using the most environmentally friendly methods possible. These are men and women whose philosophy is centred around the stimulation of their vineyard’s natural defences, thereby creating a balance between the mineral, animal and plant worlds. When it is necessary to treat the vineyards, they concentrate on using natural products, avoid the use of man-made fertilisers, preferring to use manure and only use pesticides and herbicides as a last resort. The majority of these growers follow the policy of ploughing (which vastly reduces the need to use herbicides) and the planting of seasonal, water-retentive crops in their vines. All this, coupled with high-density planting, encourages the roots of the vines to burrow deep down, increasing the range of trace elements available, resulting in more complex, ‘terroir’-based wines. Also, the majority of those growers listed adhere to a policy of hand-picking rather than machine harvesting. Nothing appears on the labels as there is no ‘marketing’ motivation behind these producers’ philosophy - simply the desire to make better wines which reflect the cleaner environment they are grown in. When it comes to wine-making, the lowest possible ‘doses’ of sulphur are used in the cellars and any ‘chemical’ or unnatural intervention or treatment are avoided during the wine-making process.

Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 2014, Jean-Marc Morey
Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 2014, Jean-Marc Morey
A fantastic white Burgundy from Jean-Marc Morey, Côte de Beaune, which exhibits a purity of rich fruit (coupled with a mouth-tingling freshness) that is rare to find.

Vacqueyras Cuvée Doucinello 2011
Vacqueyras Cuve Doucinello 2011
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.
