About L’Absurde Génie des Fleurs
L’Absurde Génie des Fleurs is the winemaking partnership of Tom Gautier and Miha Trifa. They moved to Bédarieux in Hérault (a village near Montpellier) in 2016, acquiring their first small plot of vines on the limestone plateau above the Orb River. They started a micro-production winery, producing only a few thousand bottles from a handful of local varieties (Carigna, Cinsault, and Clairette) in addition to grapes purchased from local vignerons François Aubry, Rémi Poujol, and Julien Peyras.
The duo expanded in 2019, with the opportunity to take on 5.5ha of old, goblet-trained vines in Clairac from local vigneron Bernard Milhaud. Their farming is still in the process of organic conversion. Wines are produced with a manual vertical press and use neither sulfite addition nor filtration. They include a range of crown-capped bottles, where the cuvées are named after gnomes from Romanian folklore, taken from miha’s native Romania.
L’Absurde Génie des Fleurs, the absurd genius of flowers, comes from the French poet Jean Cocteau and reflects his solitude and contemplation at the view of nature.
