Domaine Pechigo 'Le Blanc' 2009 tastes like sunshine

I never thought I’d write about wine. I know basically nothing about wine, and when it all just tastes like ‘wine,’ what’s there to say? 

Except, apparently, they don’t. Recently I’ve had wines that taste like raspberry-cherry lightening, almond lava flow and chalkboards (like, separately). I’ve done blackberry jello shots poolside and been transported to smoking joints lying on my back galaxy-watching lakeside. And I’ve definitely drunk one that just tasted like beer. 

Apparently these ‘other’ wines are ‘natural wines,’ and evidently the guys making them are doing something different. So different (see above) that their wines don’t taste like ‘wine’. Some don't even look like wine (this one's cloudy). And so suddenly it’s not about wine and I have lots to say.

Tasting notes:

“Le Blanc” tastes like sunshine. Like light streaming through trees and bruised apples in a basket. Like the stuff you imagine Hummingbirds are into, which (for me) is something very viscous with a lot of guava / lychee / pineapple / nectarine in it on a lot of ice with a lot of straws. Like something alive and rotting and in a rush.

Post updated with a picture I took from Rødder & Vin because, like normal people, I wasn't taking pictures of wine in 2015.
