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. He bought this vineyard in 2002 from another viticulteur. Some years later, in 2007, he founded his own négoce business, buying grapes from other growers, because the 1.3 hectares of vines of his own estate were not producing enough grapes to satisfy demand.

Aromas of flowers and small red berries. The palate is juicy and light and packed with summer fruit flavours. A beautiful  expression of Cabernet Franc.
