The Wine: L'Etoile du Berger Red Bordeaux 2019

Crafted from Merlot grapes grown in the vineyards of Sainte Foy-la-Grande, situated in the eastern part of the Gironde department. The region's clay and limestone soil shapes the wine's character. Fermented spontaneously, then aged for 18 months in a concrete tank without the use of fining or filtration techniques.

The Producer: Les Terres Dubien

Les Terres Dubien, established in 2020, is a boutique estate with 3 hectares of vineyards located across Saint-Yzans-du-Médoc, Couquèques, and Lesparre in the Médocaine peninsula, near Bordeaux. Under the guidance of winemaker Benoit, the estate is committed to organic and biodynamic farming practices, emphasizing the unique terroir of each plot.

The estate adopts a tailored approach to vineyard management, with tillage and plant cover varying from plot to plot. Infusions made from plants, many of which are harvested directly from the estate or nearby areas in Médoc, are used in the vineyards alongside minimal applications of copper and sulfur. The harvesting process is manual, involving the help of friends, adding a personal touch to their wines.

In the winemaking process, Les Terres Dubien focuses on natural methods, utilizing native yeasts and aiming for gentle extractions, often foregoing the use of a wine pump. The objective is to highlight the natural fruit flavors and achieve finesse in the wines. The aging process ranges from 8 to 18 months in vats and old barrels, depending on the specific cuvées. Bottling is done without fining or filtration, with sulfur dioxide levels between 0 and 30 mg/L, varying with the vintage. Les Terres Dubien also engages in collaborative projects with other winemakers outside the Médoc region.

Shipping Policy


Stress-Free Shipping

At Primal Wine, we like to be transparent about everything we do. When it comes to buying products online, shipping is the most important aspect, and that’s why we take great care in shipping and handling your order using only 100% recycled packaging material.

Important Compliance Requirements

FedEx and other carriers we might occasionally use can only deliver wine to customers who are 21 years or older. Someone must be at the address to receive the package, carriers don't just drop a package and leave. They must ensure the person receiving the wine is 21 or older.

Re-shipping a Package

If a package gets returned to us after three failed delivery attempts, we can only re-ship the wine upon payment of a re-shipping fee to be determined based on shipping address and number of bottles. Shipping wine is extremely expensive, we are sorry about this, but we have no other choice. Please make sure there's always someone at the address you enter as your shipping address.

If you'd like to receive a refund for a package that was returned to us after FedEx made three delivery attempts, we can do that but we must keep a $20 refund fee; FedEx charges us a lot of money for returns, unfortunately, I can't stress this enough.

Re-routing a Package

If you'd like to re-route a package after it's been shipped, we can do so upon payment of a $25 re-routing fee. We cannot re-route a package across state borders. For any change of address, please contact us as soon as possible, ideally within 1-2 days from placing the order or we cannot guarantee we'll be able to reroute or change your order's shipping address.

Canceling an Order

If you'd like to cancel an order after it's been shipped, we can do so upon payment of a small cancelling fee – the amount depends on how big the order is. Carriers charge us a lot of money to recall a package en-route.
