This wine domaine has been in the family for 10 generations. It now covers 59 hectares of vineyards planted primarily with the Sauvignon varietal. In the era of standardisation, we adopted an avant-garde approach by vinifying our wines separately according to their lieu-dits (individual parcels). We chose to move away from modern vinification techniques to allow nature to craft our wines.
We are committed to using growing methods that respect the soils, water, life forms and natural rhythms in the vineyards in order to produce authentic, living wines. We believe that this is the only way to give our Sancerre terroirs the freedom they need to reveal their true potential. The entire Domaine is managed in accordance with the principles of Biodynamic Agriculture. The Biodynamic approach and the lunar calendar dictate our work in both the vineyards and the winery. We are a member of the Biodyvin consortium, which is a group of wine producers who are committed to using Biodynamic wine growing methods. Our work is subject to monitoring and certification in order to receive the Biodyvin seal of approval.
