For hip & swingin’ cats everywhere–

Eric Texier’s Chat Fou is composed of 45% Grenache, 35% Cinsault, and 25% of a white blend of Clairette/Viognier/Chassels and other white grapes. The vines were planted from a south-facing slope, yielding a flesher and more charming wine. The fruit is farmed organically, and was fermented with native yeasts in concrete tanks followed by a short five-day maceration with no sulfur. A lighter “vin bistro,” styled wine.
  • Eric Texier is literally the GOAT of natural wine within the Rhône Valley.
  • After pursuing a career in nuclear engineering (yeah he’s also super smart) he ended up becoming a trailblazer, putting the regions of Brézème and Saint Julien en Sain Alban on the map.
  • He is extremely hands on in the vineyard, and his winemaking process is very hands off - with no sulfur added.
  • Eric believes Cinsault is potentially a much more sustainable varietal than Grenache as the temperatures warm in the Rhône Valley.

Vibes with:

  • The song “My Way” by Frank Sinatra.
  • Hanger steak dripping with butter.
  • Fedoras.
