Producer: Jean-Baptiste Duquesne is a Bordeaux Pirate, shaking up the conventions of Bordeaux bureaucracy and challenging the status quo. After his selling his French cuisine recipe sharing website, he wrote the book "Bordeaux: Une Histoire de Cépages" which is a detailed history of 19th Century grape varieties in the Bordeaux.

Obsessed, he turned Château de Cazebonne into the largest library of ancestral grape varieties, such as: Mancin, Castets, Bouchalès, St-Macaire, Jurancon noir, Mérille, Béquignol, Pardotte, Gros Cabernet, Petit Péjac, Sauvignonasse, Penouille…. He has already planted 26 of the recognised historical varieties and aims to have all 57 planted by 2030...


Viticulture and vinification: Sémillon harvested 1/9/22, Sauvignon on 7/9/22. Slow pressing then settling for 24 hours at 12°C. Alcoholic fermentation with natural yeasts. Unfined, unfiltered. Chilling to remove limescale. Bottled in October 22 and bottle fermentation finished in spring 23.


Tasting: Elegant, fruit driven Pet Nat with notes of apricot, peach, grapefruit, melon. The Maceration offers a slightly biting phenolic structure to balance the acidity and oily palate.

Gaz'bonne, Pet'Nat 2022
