Presentation :

Little parents 's estate created in middle of 70's ; everyone inherit of vineyard around Cramant, Chouilly, Oiry and Avize. Commun purchases in the area, also on Epernay and Ay.

Traditionnal viticulture and first try in organic way in 2010. Biodynamic pratics start in 2012 on mainly parcels. My idea is apprehend and bring out as better dna of each terroir and ceate along my desire, my imagination, harvest after harvest, cuvées having each one his identité, especially vintage. Purity, singularity and why not originality are my dearest wishes ; that why I created 'parcelles et coups de coeur'. Each label illustrade my sensation with the wine.

Wine side, partnership with Hervé Jestin from 2009, no chaptalisation from the full organic way up now. Vinification with less sulfur as possible and no. Brightness, luster, joy and blossoming are our favorite themas and research. Natural wine balance after cellar olding year, avoiding mainly 'dosage' or a few one.

If I resume,...my devise : "The nature is well done", there's surely not as better than it or her...?!
