Natural and Triple A wines | Our selection

Natural wines, including those with the Triple A label, represent a whole new(ish) part of the wine universe to be explored and enjoyed. To help you navigate our selection, we got some of our team to pick their favourite bottles and tell us a bit about them.

A quick reminder, natural wines are those made with no added sulphites, or just a very small dose. Sulphites are used in the industry as a way of stabilising the wine, but more and more producers are rejecting the use of chemical additives in their craft…some have always held this philosophy, and others are fresher on the scene. Either way, there is not yet an official definition for a natural wine, but at iDealwine we’ve used a measure of 40 mg/L of SO2 as the maximum. Beyond the question of sulphites, these wines are often produced organically, meaning that both the vineyard and the winery are kept free of chemical intervention and synthetic additives. To find out more, we have an article dedicated to natural wines here: Natural wine: a passing trend or a sustainable phenomenon?

As for natural wines with a Triple A label, they largely cover the same criteria. Luca Gargano and his team have a strict selection process based on how the wine is produced, taking into account the integrity of the craft and centring terroir. The Triple A label is their way of recognising wine makers who firmly reject any standardisation in the industry. You can read our full article here.

Here we have some top picks from the team to help guide you in your choices:

Laure Bouzereau, Communications and Events
  • 2019 Moulin à Vent by Paul-Henri Thillardon: ‘I recommend this domain for the summer, cuvées that bring back wonderful tasting memories from me during a trip to the Beaujolais. They go really well with a barbecue!’
  • 2018 Pommard by Fanny Sabre: ‘I’ve tried some of Fanny Sabre’s other cuvées and loved them, so I’m keen to try this one, too. Coming from my home region, I have a soft spot…’
  • 2019 Savennières Clos de la Coulée de Serrant: ‘This is a perfect bottle to open on a summer evening; it pairs nicely with dishes involving fish or white meat. It’s quite intense, which surprised me, so I recommend aerating it a few hours before serving.’
