Notes from The Casual Fine Drinking:
"Domaine du Petit Bonhomme is a small winery in the heart of Provence. It is run by Fabien Chanavas and his wife. He has been working in the viticulture business for about 10 years, including in Corsica at Demeter wineries and has been making his own natural wine for 3 years. Absolutely natural without or with the addition of very little sulphites. The grapes are harvested by hand and the soil is worked by his beloved horse. On only 1.7 hectares he grows Grenache Noir, Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris and Syrah and makes just about 4000 bottles a year.
Domaine du Petit Bonhomme l'Acrobate is a blend of 90% Grenache Blanc and 10% Grenache Gris. After pressing, 1/3 of the cuvée ages for 6 months in new 300 liter wooden barrels. This beautiful orange color is brought about by the 15 days of maceration on the skins."
