Biodynamics in Bordeaux

Just a short post to flag up an interesting one from Nick Stephens of Bordeaux Undiscovered about Pontet Canet's conversion to biodynamic viticulture and other chateaux who are in the process of conversion or considering it.

He doesn't however mention Chateau le Puy Côtes de Francs whose 2003 caught the world's attention a few months back when it was featured in a Japanese manga comic. I got the chance to taste it back in October and it really was quite something: sensuously dark and velvety with that exciting 'live' quality you tend to find in natural wines. Almost impossible to buy now though. The most recent vintage I could find on wine-searcher.com was the 2006 from Zelas.
