In 2015, Aurelia and Frédéric changed their lives and acquired this estate located on the beautiful terroir of the Cérons plateau, the historic heart of the Graves region. Concerned about the environment, they have been working with organic methods since 2020, and all their bottles are now certified as suitable for reuse, meaning they can be washed and put back into circulation to avoid wasting energy. They produce wines for friends, to share, and seek to preserve the simple pleasure of drinking a glass of wine. A real nugget that has set itself apart from its Bordeaux neighbors!
Our estate is based on a sandy-gravel terroir, a very filtering soil with a nutrient-rich sub-layer and rich biological activity due to the former bed of a Garonne tributary. We have grassed (oats, vetch and trefoil) the white plots to enrich the soil with organic matter and to provide nitrogen for the development of aroma precursors. We don't use herbicides at all, preferring to return to traditional techniques such as shoeing the vines and working the soil. This environmental awareness is guaranteed by our Terra Vitis certification since our installation in 2015 and, since 2020, by our conversion to organic farming. As for the harvest, it's mechanical except for our sweet wines, for which we rediscover the festive atmosphere of the grape harvest by calling on all our friends and family, who are rewarded with a good meal... if they've worked well! Our long-held dream of returning to our family roots and the land came true in 2015 with the purchase of our farm. We left Parisian life with our two children to settle just a stone's throw from where Aurelia's great-uncle had vineyards: we've come full circle! We're determined to develop our business with greater respect for our environment, which is first and foremost the environment in which we live, and to make products that reflect who we are. So we've broken with Bordeaux codes to create labels with a more contemporary aesthetic.
To be a winemaker is quite simply to love vines and wine! Seeing the material, the plant and the product evolve, and guiding them through their evolution, is marvellous and fascinating. We want our wines to be friends' wines, to be shared and drunk. There's room for every type of product, but we feel it's important to keep the pleasure of drinking a glass of wine simple, so that everyone can find what they like without necessarily having to develop an endless technical opinion... So, here's to you!
