Pat Desplats and Sebastien (Babass) Dervieux are notorious extremists and champions of the natural wine movement in France. Since they began in 2001 the have been making wine in the most natural way possible – nothing in the vineyard, spontaneous fermentation and no sulfites at all they even use a horse for vineyard work. There is a wildness to their wines but their experience in making wine without sulfites really shows. We are fortunate to have some of the last bottles produced by Domaine des Griottes before Pat and Sebastien went their separate ways.
