Food & Wine: Low-Tech Wines from Star Importers

Some wine producers are emphatically old-fashioned, opting for wild yeasts and hand-picked organic grapes and eschewing modern-day techniques like filtering and adding sulfites. Importers like Savio Soares, Louis/Dressner and Jenny & François champion them.

2007 Le Temps des Cerises Avanti Popolo ($23)

This cassis-and-rose-scented Carignane from France’s Languedoc is available in the U.S. for the first time.

2007 Thierry Puzelat le Telquel ($18)

As befits the name (which means “as is”), this Loire Valley red made with 100 percent Gamay is simple and juicy.

2005 Clos de Camuzeilles Carignan ($27)

An earthy red from a family-owned Languedoc-Rousillon property, in operation since 1860.
