In 2015, Charlotte and Louis Pérot left behind literary careers in Paris to rebuild a dilapidated farm in the South West of France with fruit trees, forests, sheep, goats, chickens, and old vines. 30km from Cahors. Louis and Charlotte are not doing anything flashy with their old-fashioned low-tech winemaking, but they are nailing the balance of fruit and texture in a great way. Their cave is dug into the limestone rock near their house where temperatures are perfect for the wines
