The Philosophy

« We take great care to look after our vines, keep the soil alive, listen to the plants »

« Our vines are naturally grass covered, with the spontaneous vegetation. We control the density of plant cover in time and space, to satisfy the needs of the vines. We do not use chemical fertilisers and as far as possible we try to limit use of crop protection products whenever possible. We restrict ourselves to using only the simplest products (copper, sulphur) and we do not use insecticides or anti-rot products.

It has taken several million years for the soil to form, and so we do everything we can to enable it to remain alive and change according to the laws of nature. We try to minimise our footprint.

Our vines need healthy soil to produce grapes, which through our wines express the minerality of our soil and the character of our Sancerre wines »
