Journalist by conviction... winegrower by passion! Laetitia has two jobs. What do they have in common? Curiosity, encounters, sharing... For her, making wine is a work of art, a profession of expression. She loves atypical vintages and campaigns for the protection of rare grape varieties. His profession of faith? As long as there is vine, there is hope!
Louis, my grandfather, created the estate in 1954. He settled in Théüs, a small village perched in the Southern Alps, told by Giono in "Le Hussard sur le toit". The terroir is magnificent there! My father, Marc, then followed suit and fought to preserve the local grape variety that was tending to disappear.
Today, I am taking over the torch. I would like to be part of this family history, to continue to campaign for biodiversity and the preservation of our environment. I am very attached to my region and I hope to make people travel and discover the wines of my region all over the world!
Eternal lover of old grape varieties and atypical wines, I work alongside my father, Marc, to fight against the standardisation and standardisation of tastes. I am in favour of the diversity of aromas and pleasures. Did you know that about ten grape varieties are used to produce 80% of the wines in France? However, there are many others! Twenty years ago, we decided to update one of them.
And it is quite naturally the Mollard, the traditional grape variety of our region, that we have chosen to highlight, supported by the Institut Français de la Vigne. Nowadays, we find more and more consumers who want to find originality in their glasses encourages us in this approach. I hope you will soon be one of Mollard's fans!
Finding lovers, finding atypical wines? You will like our domain! In a region still little known for its wines, which are so popular with wine lovers, we have preserved a local grape variety that you will not find anywhere else: mollard. Its name is surprising; but know that in our country "Mollard" means "small mountain" or "small mountain"! This red grape variety with spicy notes is emblematic of the Hautes-Alpes. We are proud to have given him back his letters of nobility!"
