Notes from the Importer: L’Absurde Génie des Fleurs is the winemaking partnership of Tom Gautier and Miha Trifa. They
moved to Bédarieux in Hérault (a village near Montpellier) in 2016, acquiring their first small plot of vines on the limestone plateau above the Orb River.
They started a micro-production, producing only a few thousand bottles across a handful local Varieties of mostly Cinsault, Carignan and Clairette; in addition to grapes purchased from local vignerons including François Aubry, Rémi Poujol, and Julien Peyras.
They expanded in 2019, with the opportunity to take on 5.5ha of old, gobelet-trained vines in Clairac from local vigneron Bernard Milhaud. Their farming is still in the process of organic conversion.
Grapes include Cinsault, Aramon, Carignan, Grand Noir de la Calmette, Morastel, Mourvèdre,Terret, and Chardonnay.
