Tasting notes on the wine: 

"Bottled with a touch of volatile acidity and a dab of residual sugar, this wine was an effort to salvage a funky tank of 2019 carignan and syrah with the addition of some 2020 syrah. This is lively with spritz, and a bit like an abandoned glass of lambrusco. Dark, devilish, faintly sweet, and perfectly enjoyable with a chill and a bit of roast meat." — Aaron Ayscough

About the winemaker: 

"Former hospitality school teacher and Languedoc natural wine legend Jean-François Coutelou is both a radical and a perfectionist. The wine’s name is at once a reference to French current events and a wink at the wildcard nature of Coutelou’s vinification gambit: 'whatever it tastes like'." — Aaron Ayscough
