Nicolas was a Jazz and blues pianist until he was 22 at which age he became a winemaker. He had always been passionate about wine, and when he was finding it difficult to earn his living in the music business he
decided on a dramatic career change. He studied winemaking and viticulture at Montreuil and supplemented these studies with more at Bordeaux. He also worked with several local Anjou Vignerons to acquire valuable experience.
The wine reveals aromas of almonds and pears leading to a palate with ripe orchard fruit flavours. Quite ample and mouth-filling undercut by good acidity.
