Domaine des Rouges-Queues

Isabelle and Jean-Yves Vaney have operated their tiny Maranges domaine, the Domaine de Rouges-Queues, since 1998. They have worked as naturally as conditions permit, often adding no sulfur even at bottling but doing so if they feel necessary. Farming is all biodynamic. Vinification is with stems to the greatest extent possible.

They tried very hard—and made delicious wines—but for years nobody cared. The name Maranges just doesn't sell wine... it's too Edgy! But they had the natural wine cred, and they eventually figured out how to use it. They started traveling to natural wine fairs like the Loire's famous Dive Bouteille, and their wines were so pure and tasty that their table would often be among the most crowded. And sure enough, the couple soon had a long waiting list for allocations.
