Vinification: "Show me a fanatic and I’ll show you a success," goes the saying, and truer words could not be said about Quentin Bourse – the “Idiot Angel” of Azay-Le-Rideau. While that is the rough translation of the name of his label, Le Sot de L’Ange, he is a far cry from anything remotely resembling an idiot. His relentless work ethic, innovation, and borderline obsessive perfectionism result in meticulously crafted, serious wines. 'Malolactix' is all fresh red fruit, balanced, acid-driven, with the Pinot Noir having the leading role.
