Once more, iDealwine has decided to put the best organic, biodynamic and natural wines in the spotlight…some of which figure among our all-time favourite domains!
From Burgundy, we have almost 200 organic, biodynamic, and natural wines, bringing together the most prestigious names with some of the best, more affordable cuvées. There’s no need to remind you of the biodynamic work of Burgundy’s most renowned domains, Romanée-Conti and Leroy, both of which you’ll find here in ready-to-drink vintages. Less well-known by the public at large, though certainly coveted by those in the know, Domaine Arnaud Ente is also a certified organic producer. Don’t miss out on other Burgundian icons of the organic and biodynamic world like Leflaive, Dugat-Py, Comtes Lafon, or perhaps the Bizot, Prieuré-Roch and Pacalet domains that also make natural wines.
From Bordeaux, there is unsurprisingly a more limited choice in terms of organic, biodynamic, and natural production, but there are nonetheless a few truly beautiful wines on offer, often in vintages that are ready to be enjoyed. There are several crus classés such as Château Latour (1978, 2005, 2007, 2010), Angélus (1995, 1999, 2001, 2002, 2005, 2016), Palmer (2009, 2015), La Lagune (1988, 1990), Pontet Canet (2007) – a pioneer of biodynamics in Bordeaux – or Sauternes like Climens (2000) and Guiraud (2009). You should also note the presence of some more affordable gems that will be quickly snapped up – think 1998 hauts de Pontet Canet, Château Maison Blanche, Haut-Bergey or the Emilien cuvée from Château Le Puy (a natural wine).
From the Rhône Valley, we’re pleased to present some highly-coveted bottles such as Chapoutier in large formats, Cornas from Thierry Allemand and Côte-Rôties from Jean-Michel Stephan (both natural domains), Châteauneuf-du-Pape cuvées from Clos des Papes, Vieille Julienne, and Charvin. As for the more attainable prices, we recommend the delightful Châteauneuf from Pierre André, Crozes-Hermitage from Domaine des Entrefaux and Aléofane, or even Stéphane Usseglio’s Côte-du-Rhône, for less than €10.
From the Loire Valley, it’s impossible not to think of Clos Rougeard when we’re talking about biodynamic and natural wine! You’ll find several examples here, in vintages that are ready to eb enjoyed. Another biodynamic icon that we’d be fools not to include is, of course, la Coulée de Serrant, a true trailblazer of this movement in the Loire, and even on a national scale. Trendier and less well-advertised, though no less sought-after by fans of natural wine, are Domaines Stéphane Bernaudeau, Richard Leroy and Bel Air. For prices you’ll love, look to the Domaines de l’Ecu, Catherine et Pierre Breton, Jo Landron, Bonnet-Huteau and Xavier Amirault.
There are even green options in Champagne, with sublime labels such as Roederer (biodynamic) with their fine Cristal cuvée and the legendary Jacques Selosse (natural), as well as Francis Boulard and Bourgeois Diaz.
Some other names to look out for are Giacomo Conterno (Barolo), Pierre Overnoy – a key figure in the natural movement – Ganevat, Trévallon, Zind-Humbrecht, Weinbach, Albert Mann, Foillard, and Comte Abbatucci…
