Eric's story is the story of a globetrotter from Chinon who came back to his roots to make real wines, wines of the Loire! After having worked in wine export and promotion in France and Dubai, Eric Santier decided to become a winegrower, after his forties. After training in Bordeaux and some rich experiences with other winegrowers, he took over Domaine Dozon.
All of the 14 hectares of the estate are located at Saut au Loup in Ligré, on the left bank of the Vienne river, in AOC Chinon. Spread over two types of soil, siliceous clay at the top of the hillsides, limestone clay at the bottom of the hillsides, the vineyard is exposed to the south and south-east in one piece. Owned by the DOZON family for 5 generations, the estate was taken over in 2013 by Eric Santier.
"The takeover of this domain represents for me a double return to the roots. After having lived successively in Burgundy, the Var, Paris and Dubai, I am back in Chinon, my native city. But it is also a return to values that are essential to me: respect for the earth. The wine grower's profession is a truly complete profession that requires technique, working the land, selling and communicating."
