Les Equilibristes are Francois de Monval and Florent Girou, who aim to "shake up winemakers willing to craft different wines". Their set of golden rules are: indigenous grape varieties, organic winemaking, indigenous yeast and minimal sulphur.
"Hirsute Blanc" is made from Semillon, Sauvignon and Chenin. Two days of skin contact (call this wine a baby orange), results in rich texture and aromatics. Medium bodied with notes of yellow apple, pear and lemon zest with a subtle tartness and freshness. Slightly wild, as its name implies. Bergerac, France, 2019.
