Jean Delobre has a truly winning smile. He seems content, happy with his lot. It’s a good sign. Wines are so often a reflection of the people that make them.
Jean’s polyculture estate – he grows cereals and apricots – is today an entirely biodynamic affair but it wasn’t always so. Historically his family sold grapes to the cooperative and when he took the estate on in the 1980s he started by doing the same. With the support of the local cooperative he converted to biodynamics in 1990 and continued to work with them until 2001 when he decided it was time to go solo and make his own wine.
You can taste Jean’s steady, thoughtful approach in his wines. These are not heady, overly extracted reds, rather these are wines that have a delicious purity of fruit and freshness; they sign and they dance on the palate… They make you smile - a smile just as broad as that of Jean Delobre.
