Personality: Light-headed, fruity and crunchy Bojo as we like it! Serve well chilled with some good charcuterie or goat cheese to nibble on.

Vineyard: Clay-silt, the average age of vines 40 years. Organically farmed by Thibault himself.

Making of: The grapes are hand-harvested and then undergo the traditional whole-bunch carbonic maceration. Spontaneous fermentation, aging on fine lees in concrete vat for 8 months. No fining, no filtration, max. 2ppm of SO2 added at bottling.

Winemaker's Note: The 2019 vintage of this wine was Thibault’s very first wine, made from his first purchased parcel. It is called En Roue Libre (French term for freewheeling, or neutral gear) – a name that honors both hands-off natural winemaking methods and Thibault’s love for cycling. (He even used to race in a club before dedicating himself to full-time winemaking, and the bike still remains a big weekend pleasure.)
