Domaine des Chézelles is a family estate located in the Cher Valley, only a few kilometres from the Beauval zoo and the Château de Chenonceau. An estate that extends over 25 hectares of vines and on which we produce the Touraine Chenonceaux, Touraine and Crémant de Loire appellations. We cultivate our vines on sandy-clayey-limestone soils that give our white, rosé and red wines exceptional suppleness and fruitiness.
Our story is far from trivial, it is even what we would call a crazy adventure. Indeed, it was in 2016 that my parents, Philippe and Catherine decided to give up their old life and their profession as accountants and start working as winegrowers. However, nothing is due to chance. Philippe being son and grandson of a winegrower, the passion for vines already flowed through his veins. He persuaded my mother and I to follow him. And today we work as a family and everyone has found their place. I devote myself particularly to winemaking and blending with the help of a consulting oenologist. I strive to produce simple wines, "without fuss", easy to access for the consumer.
As a young person in this profession, I do not claim to already have a well-established philosophy of the winegrower's profession. I learn every day by doing this art. Because it's quite an art to make wine. Just as the artist the winegrower chooses his colours and equipment to obtain the most beautiful work possible. Just as the artist the winegrower is imbued with doubt and flaw because at each harvest it is necessary to put his work back into the trade and redesign a new work. Just as the artist the winegrower must be humble in the face of the difficulties of his task, but he derives such satisfaction from it at the end that this sacrifice seems quite derisory.
