Honestly, I don’t get the joke or paronomasia behind the label of the Veau qu’a bu l’r (the calf who drank the r). Maybe it has something to do with the Israelites’ golden calf?
What I can tell you is that — at least according to the internets — is a carbonic maceration old-vine Marsanne from some folks in southern France who have a groovy winemaking operation called Domaine de l’Ancestra

I gladly paid a mere $40 for it basing my selection solely on my trust of the wine merchants at Selection Massale, Cory Cartwright and Guilhaume Gerard, and their superlative palates and mission to bring
Natural “sincere” wines to the U.S. from France (“sincere” is my new term for what used to be called “Natural” wine).
Great wine, great value.
If you get to the party early enough, they’ll do your hair up go-go stye.
Our tour was so much freakin’ fun and the last night in SF at the Bardot a Go Go party was over the top.
So much fun to play with Joachim Cooder on drums (right). He is so amazing, with such nuance and grooviness in his playing and personality.
I’m super glad to be back at home with my girls but, man, there is something to be said for gettin’ yer ya-yas out.
Thanks to all who came out to rock out with us!
Buona domenica, yall! Happy Sunday…
