We love a wine with a story and this biodynamic and certified organic red has so much going on…

The name ‘Enlèvement Demandé’ means ‘Removal Requested’, and the label is a copy of the sticker slapped on badly parked cars in Paris to signal that they should towed away. That was exactly what happened to the rule-breaking Nicolas Réau while he was trying to decide what to call his new wine.

This rebellious Loire-based winemaker was a jazz and blues pianist before making a dramatic career change that took him into the world of wine. Married to a French wine writer and fierce proponent of the natural wine movement called Sylvie Augereau, Nicolas Réau is building quite the reputation for himself, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Marcel Lapierre and Yvon Métras.

Enlèvement Demandé is 100% Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon is the most planted grape variety on Earth and Cabernet Franc is one of its parents, making this underappreciated grape variety quite literally the daddy of wine grapes. The low-sulphur, zero oak wine is juicy, bouncy, light and packed with summer fruit, and will appeal to fans of New World Pinot Noir. We recommend serving with charcuterie, slow-cooked beef, rare lamb, roast goose, simple tomato sauces and tapas.
