Our vineyard is located on the coteaux of Charly‑sur‑Marne and Saulchery in the Vallée de la Marne. The cru is reknow of the quality of its meuniers.
According to us, luxury is time, and we are convinced a rich and hearthy soil is the only condition to elaborate an exceptionnal wine. Thus, we grow our small vineyard (only 1,07 hectare) the organic way through a global and slow approach: we work almost entirely by hand, reducing the use of mechanics and petrol to the minimum. We privilegiate animal for hoeing as well as we only use plants and essentiel oils.
Each vine requires a specific attention. This singular approach could be seen as an intellectual statement, inspired my vitalist theories (those which inspired Steiner’s biodynamic) as well as passionate readings of Novalis, Thoreau, Bachelard and Fukuoka.
Luxury is also rarity. We only produce micro-cuvées: for example 400 bottles of our rosé de saignée Les Illuminations and our blanc de noirs Pléiades numbered by hand. 900 bottles are made of each one of our Millesimes, with a manual poignettage.
