This is the joyful second wine of the singular estate, Chateau le Puy. Le Puy defies all assumptions of winemaking, especially in Bordeaux. The estate is biodynamic, plowed entirely by gorgeous, rigorous horses, and only spontaneous fermentation and native yeasts occur. Technical blah blah aside, this wine is brimming with dusty dark fruit, generosity, and energy. While many Bordeaux are bogged down by overripeness, over-production, and heavy price tags, this is a bottle with substance and lift, freshness and complexity, meat on its bones but in no way encumbered by the common burdens of a mostly-commercial region. This is a gem, and a freakin' steal of a bargain, too.
