A terroir

Tearing up the "tired" plots of land that I leave fallow for 4 years before replanting the white and mourvèdre grape varieties
Sitting on a Kimmeridgian Basin, the vineyard soils of Clos des Nines are strewn with fossilized oysters and limestone pebbles. The red grape varieties grow on clay-limestone soils that preserve the potential acidity of the grapes; the white grape varieties are planted on silty-sandy soils that favour good water drainage.
Situated at an altitude of 70m and along a windy corridor, my terroir has the ideal conditions to produce wines of great finesse.

From Vine to Cellar

Our wines are all certified in Organic Agriculture FR-BIO-01.

How does this translate into reality?

A living ground

  • It's the one who feeds the plant

  • I amend my grounds with organic compost every autumn...

  • Tillage is limited to what is strictly necessary, earthworms do the rest.
  • An agriculture

  • I do not use any synthetic products on the plant or in the ground

  • I only use sulfur and copper and a little orange peel oil for its antifungal properties…
  • Une biodiversité

  • The Clos des Nines is naturally surrounded by low walls, wild hedges and scrubland

  • The local fauna finds its natural habitat here

  • This biodiversity combined with the practice of organic farming reinforces the natural balance of our ecosystem
  • Manual harvest

  • This is THE key moment of the vintage

  • The harvest is spread out over 5 to 6 weeks depending on the maturity of the grape varieties

  • The harvest is preferably done in the morning, to preserve the freshness of the berries
  • A selected

  • I pay particular attention to picking healthy grapes at their right point of ripeness. If necessary, we sort the grapes in the vineyard

  • Each bunch of grapes makes up the raw material of the wine in the making

  • Each bay must be flawless
  • The vinification

  • My work in the cellar then consists of accompanying the transformation of the grape juice to reveal the aromas of each grape variety and the character of my terroir

  • Strict hygiene limits the use of sulphites

  • My wines are protected and stable over time
