Product Description

The Wine: Ton Rouge d'Elevage 2020

Ça Boit Libre Ton Rouge d'Elevage 2020 is a red natural wine made from organically farmed Gamay grapes grown in Savoie, France.

The Producer: Ça Boit Libre • Damien Bastian Goddard

This is the first vintage for Damien from his new cellar. An old horse barn turned Chai where he has been able to produce his first vintage of quantity. Going from a meager 2000 bottles in 2018 when we had first met to 20,000 bottles in 2020.

In 2019 Damien was able to purchase 3 hectares of gamay, pinot noir, altesse, jacquere, and chasselas in a nearby village of Marsaz on the border of Switzerland, while acquiring another parcel closer to Lake Geneva consisting mostly of more chasselas. Mostly planted on limestone and clay with wild alpine grasses, this vineyard is steep enough to make it difficult to drive a tractor, and hard to walk the rows with all the moisture gathered from the snow and rain. Damien, through his work at Domaine Ganevat, has experience with this kind of terroir and it shows in his first vintage.

The reds see a semi-carbonic maceration and are aged until the next harvest in 600L Demi-muid while the whites are mostly directly pressed and aged in smaller barrels. Each year Damien makes a macerated white and this year; with the recently acquired Jacquere, he has produced a short 2 week maceration reminiscent of the legendary Jean Yves Perrons macerations. The wines show an alpine freshness from their high altitude, and we think their drinkability will entice all kinds of wine drinkers. (source: Varda Wines)

Shipping & Returns

WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR HEAT-RELATED ISSUES. WE OFFER ICE-PACKS AS ONE OF OUR SHIPPING OPTIONS. PLEASE SELECT THAT OPTION SHOULD YOU THINK THAT THERE COULD BE HEAT-RELATED ISSUES.

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. We don't ship to: LA, KS, MS, AL, WI, KY, NH, UT, SD, MI, AR.

Re-shipping

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, which will be determined based on quantity and shipping address. 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.

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.

Important Compliance Requirements

UPS and other carriers we might occasionally use can only deliver wine to customers who are 21 years or older.

Important COVID Update

UPS and FedEx declared that in order to protect their workers and customers, they no longer require a signature on delivery. This does not mean they will drop a wine box at your door. UPS delivery workers will make sure the person receiving the wine is 21 years or older, and will ask for his/her name - only then do they deliver the package.

Shipping Rates and Options

An important premise: wine bottles are heavy – about 3 pounds each – and shipping is expensive! Primal Wine is not backed by venture capital money – we proudly are a mom and pop independent online store – and we must charge shipping on all orders under a certain amount, otherwise we wouldn’t be in business. However, we try our best to offer you very competitive shipping rates and frequent free shipping discount. Please subscribe to our newsletter to stay in the loop!

Return Policy

If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact us via e-mail at hello@primalwine.com between 9 am and 5 pm Pacific Standard Time, Monday through Sunday, we would like to understand and try to solve your concerns. Returning wine is not allowed by law, and so we might make arrangements for a refund if appropriate
