Some names are signs indeed. Domaine L‘Originel at the „Lieu-dit rouge“ - the red place. Not far from here flows the Lot. Red, heavy clay under vines and shoes. Barrel sample-red shirts, glasses, lips, sun-red skin. Red like Merlot, like Tannat. Rosé in bloodletting‘s colours. The most speaking name among all of Simon Busser‘s wines: Sauvage. Boisterous, unbowed, and free. Cahors. Côt. First dark-, then black red, then black. Lieu-dit Noir.
