Le Gras C’est la Vie IGP Mediterranee


An exciting new producer at Vine Arts! Famille de Boel France is a small family estate owned by Nelly France and Arnaud De Boel. Nelly, who is originally from Brittany, met Arnaud (who is Belgian) when they were working in New Zealand in 2009. Interested in biodynamic farming and winemaking, the couple decided to purchase vineyards in the Northern Rhône. In addition to holdings in Cornas and Saint Joseph, the couple also own some land in the Southern Rhône close to the villages of Suze-la-Rousse and Sainte-Cécile-les-Vignes. Together Nelly and Arnaud craft honest and food-friendly wines meant to be shared with family and friends.

‘Le gras c’est la vie!’ is the kind of wine we could drink everyday. The kind of wine that refreshes while you indulge in mounds of stinky cheese and salty charcuterie. It’s no coincidence that the name of this wine means “fat is life!”. Made from 45% Caladoc, 40% Grenache, and 15% Carignan, the grapes were harvested from young biodynamic farmed vines planted in the Southern Rhône. Both natural fermentation and aging took place in stainless steel tanks. Bright and brambly, this medium bodied wine has fine tannins, medium acidity, and fruity notes of red currants, bing cherry, licorice and saucisson.
