Domaine No Control Rockaille-Billy 2015

Vincent Marie hand tends his small plots of fruit in Auverge using no chemicals in farming, as is the approach in winery. No additions, including sulphur in any Domaine No Control wine – does what the label says. Gamay is the hero here. Auvergne an increasingly interesting place to drink that grape from. The name a play on words of Rockabilly, a sub-culture that quiffs and preens and dresses to a genre, but always makes me wonder ‘what do they wear at home on the couch under the quilt when they’re chilling out?’ – is there a Rockabilly tracksuit thing I don’t know about? Pretty hard to chill in natty jeans and those tight shirts and the big, floaty dresses, let alone ignore the anti-gravity of the haircuts. Anyway, Auvergne gamay.
