Domaine Le Facteur
‘Le Facteur’ (‘The Postman’) is a range of low-intervention wines made by Fabien Brutout and Mathieu Cosme at the biodynamically farmed Domaine de Beaumont in Vouvray. Named after the tradition of offering the postman a glass of wine when he comes by, these are the domain’s most convivial bottlings, meant to be enjoyed young and with abandon.
