It is in the heart of the Loire Valley castles and at the crossroads of the three provinces (Berry, Sologne and Touraine) that the estate is classified as an AOC Touraine. Neighbours of the Beauval zoo, the vines are rocked by the songs of birds, the cries of monkeys, the roars of wild animals and other animal languages. A change of scenery guaranteed!
How could I have been in another profession? My future was set. Son of winegrowers, I was born on January 22nd, the day on which Saint-Vincent, patron saint of winegrowers, is celebrated. A sign of fate, no doubt.... The farm has grown gradually over the years and generations to reach today a human-sized area. Thus, I can take care of all the stages inherent to my profession, from working in the vineyards to selling and winemaking. This allows me to enjoy both the tranquillity in the vineyards and to create a social bond: this skilful balance between listening to nature and human relations gives my job all its richness.
To be a winegrower is first and foremost to exercise a profession that reminds us how much we must be humble. Nature dictates its laws, sometimes very strict, but what a pride to work every day in the middle of different landscapes every day and to magnify what Mother Nature entrusts to us. What a pleasure to leave at dawn to work in the vineyards, to meet the animals who enjoy the quietness of the morning, to see the sun rise, sometimes to exchange a few words with the aeronaut and his passengers in a hot air balloon flying over the vineyard! It is also the pleasure to meet people, amateurs or initiated, and to hear their surprise, their delight when they discover a vintage, an unknown flavor, and when they overcome their prejudices to finally appreciate the fruit of our work.
Finally, it is an opportunity to showcase our profession in its technical and human dimension. How many people admit that they didn't suspect that to dip their lips in a glass of wine, so much work and steps were needed?
My wines have only one pretension: to combine simplicity and authenticity.
