Un Vent de Folie 2021

Vin de France

A remarkably rich red from the Roussillon, showcasing the old-vine treasures that survive in the region’s arid soil. It's the pride of Jean-Charles Duran, who tends his ancient vineyards with a passion. Dense with velvety blackberry and herbal spice.

Jean-Charles Duran is a 4th-generation grower and the first in his family to make wine. Our Languedoc winemaker-turned buyer is Mark Hoddy, who was so bowled over by the power and intensity of J-C's old-vine grapes, he made a red from them himself, then set about teaching J-C how. A few vintages later, J-C and his wife Céline have a tiny shed cellar at the bottom of the house in Roussillon's Maury, surrounded by their vineyards. The slate soils and gnarled old vines, buffeted by the Tramontane wind and scorched by the sun, produce yields as low as 8 hectolitres per hectare. Tiny. Famous Bordeaux names are now trying to buy land here. Aged for 15 months in hogshead barrels, the wine has big, warming flavours to match hearty meat dishes.
