Organic wines, a somewhat random selection of recommended bottles

Organic wines are getting more and more sought after. Journalists write more and more about them and hopefully, finally, people are realizing that there are some very delicious organic wines out there. Here are some recommended examples of what we have tasted recently.

Domaine Duseigneur Lirac Odyssée 2012

Lirac is opposite Châteauneuf-du-Pape, on the other side of the river Rhône. Here we find biodynamic Domaine Duseigneur. At least for a while yet. Rumor has it that the domain is moving across the river to Châteauneuf where Bernard Duseigneur recently purchased some vineyards. The cuvée Odyssée is one of many that Bernard makes and it is an easy-to-drink wine yet quite complex with a pleasant and fresh acidity.

Approx. 12 euro.

Pinot Noir Terres de Famille, Domaine de la Vougeraie 2011, Burgundy

From well-known family firm Boisset, this superb Burgundy tastes just the way you want a pinot noir to taste. Light and delicate in style but with complex aromas.

20-25 euro.

Domaine Bousquet Malbec Reserve 2012, Argentina, Tupungato

Tasty, fruity and structured Malbec from the beautiful, high-altitude Tupungato region at the foot of the Andes. Bousquet is a French family who arrived in Argentina in 1997 and is today the largest exporter of organic wines from Argentina.

Approx 10 euro.

Cono Sur 20 Barrels Syrah 2011, Limari Valle, Chile

In a blind test, it would be hard to guess where this elegant Syrah comes from. Limari is a remarkable wine region. It is desert dry with only 95 mm of rain per year. But fog and coolness from the Pacific Ocean gives freshness and structure in the wines.

Approx 16 euro.

Julia Kemper Touriga Nacional 2010, Beiras, Portugal

Julia is a lawyer and she also takes care of a small winery with great ambition. The ambition evident in the wines. Here we have a fruity, full-bodied and well-structured Touriga Nacional, the great grape in the port region, but also in other parts of Portugal.

20-25 euro.

Château Pech-Latt 2012, Corbieres, Languedoc

One of our favourite Languedoc wines with a very decent price tag. A beautiful food wine and with Carignan as the dominant grape, also a really good example of a typical Languedoc. Good structure, fresh, wild herbs on the nose and a generous fruit.

Approx 6,50 euro.
