The estate has been located in St Lager, in the heart of the Beaujolais Crus, since 1947. We took over the family estate in 2015, we are the 3rd generation. The estate covers only 7 hectares and concentrates solely on the production of 2 crus, Brouilly and Côte de Brouilly. All our vines are exposed on the hillside on the south-eastern slope of the Brouilly mountain. Our wines are made from a single grape variety, Gamay noir à jus blanc, and the harvest is exclusively manual.
My background is a little atypical, although I come from the agricultural sector, but further west in the Beaujolais region, I first work in agricultural and forestry work. I discovered the job later on after meeting my wife. Since 2002, I have been harvesting the grapes and have been passionate about working the vines. My father-in-law always said to his daughter: "You have to bring back one who knows how to drive a tractor", that's how I started and since then I've been passionate about this beautiful profession.
To be a winemaker is to love working with nature, discovering the senses to make the best wine and human contact during marketing. The latter is the one I am beginning to discover with great pleasure, giving people a smile by making them travel through my wine makes me a little more delighted every day.Currently most of the estates are racing for the number of hectares and the multiplication of appellations. Contrary to this current fashion, we wish to concentrate on small areas in order to work them as well as possible and to concentrate on 2 appellations in order to master perfectly their typicity. Many people do not know that there are 2 distinct crus: Brouilly and Côte de Brouilly. We strive to enhance these 2 completely different terroirs, and to do so, we use the traditional Beaujolais winemaking method which allows us to sublimate them.
