Extremely crushable, fruit driven, and ready to party! Super light and juicy, and glowing a translucent ruby, this tastes like sunshine and peppered strawberries. This chillable red ‘Babil’ is a one-off collab project between Les Equilibristes and Benoit Brazilier, their Loire Valley friend who farms the old-vine Pineau d'Aunis on his biodynamic family estate (that he runs in tandem with his mama Jean!) 

Delicious With

This chilled red perfectly pairs with holiday meals featuring cheese and charcuterie boards, turkey, stuffing, honey-glazed ham, and brisket. Or make it a refreshing foil to a salty hot dog. Goes well with the sweet and spicy sauces of grilled chicken and ribs, sausage pizza, or spicy tofu.

Their Cred

Les Equilibristes (the “Tightrope Walkers”) are François de Monval and Florent Girou.  François is a wine merchant and restaurant owner in Paris, and Floret is a winemaker from the Perigord region.  Together, the two are constantly thinking about preserving the old ways of winemaking, while questioning old practices that no longer make sense.  Les Equilibristes have a simple set of rules they follow in winemaking: use indigenous grape varieties, organic winemaking practices, indigenous yeasts, and minimal sulfur.  They make wines from purchased grapes, always organic, from different regions of France, with the goal of each wine to convey the unique terroir and local varietals of its place.
