Alexandre’s passion for working the land was inspired by his grandfather who was a farmer. At 18 he decided to go to winemaking school in Beaune. He worked for several different vignerons until he was finally able to buy a few hectares of vines in 2007. Alexandre tends his land biodynamically, works with horses (Alexandre’s horse is named Phenomène), and make wines with minimal intervention. Alexandre believes natural wine is the most authentic product of terroir and for this reason his terroir must not be altered by chemicals or by sulphites, which will obscure the hard work he does in the vineyard.
Its colour is of intense beauty; the nose is sumptuous and the perfect balance. A Loire natural wine with notes of citrus, exotic and candied fruit. Apple and lychee, with a hint of honey too. A finesse in the mouth to take your breath away. It is at the same time rich, fine, and mineral.
