Eric Pfifferling’s Domaine De L’Anglore from Lirac in the Southern Rhône is one of those crushable reds. This wine hits all the natural/bio points. As a beekeeper and wine maker, Eric employs an organic and biodynamic approach in the vineyards. He believes that weeds, insects, flowers, mushrooms, soil, climate, etc., should all be in harmony. In the cellar he uses extremely low, if any, sulfur.
The 2016 is a blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Clairette. This wine is so pure and fresh it’s like Beaujolais in the Rhône. Strawberries and blackberries with none of that raisin-y quality you can get from this region. It drinks very well at the table because it’s so versatile. Perfect with charcuterie, pizza, roasted chicken or grilled meats.
