Ten years ago, when Pascal Rossignol first began to introduce natural wines, via his shop and wine company Le Caveau, people scoffed. Not only scoffed: they laughed.
No one’s scoffing or laughing now, ten years down the line. Thanks to the patient and passionate advocacy of Mr Rossignol, and his team Claire O'Boyle-Gallagher and Colm McCan, we are well on the way to creating a wine world where natural is normal, and where the industrialised wines that line our shelves are seen as the over-chemicalised concoctions that they are. The Le Caveau wines are superb, and there is no better advocate for the cause than Pascal.
But natural wines are not the only string to the Le Caveau bow. The list is choice in every regard, and the company is formidably efficient. Discovering this company and these wines makes life better, because the Le Caveau wines express all the glory of the culture of the world of wine. Open a bottle, and you open the wonders of the natural world.
