Wine is a culmination, the fruit of choice and personal touches. It is therefore a reflection of a commitment of our three personalities.
François, the wine and its secrets
We could say he was born in the vine. Young, he followed his father Leon, and his brother Bernard, the evening between the barrels and the casks. He particularly liked the harvest period with all the excitement and the smell in the cellar that he can’t forget. The vinification of white wines requires a lot of discipline and is even a bit an austere work. We must be patient, in the cold of winter, taste regularly, understand and respect the character of each plot.
Vincent, the vineyard is his field
While he was a child, he put his boots to see the cows. This attraction to the living world grows to study engineering in agriculture. His meeting with Amélie led him to be interested in the world of wine. In spring 2006, the choice is quickly made and he leaves the world of finance to return to its roots. Naturally, it takes over from Michel in charge of the vineyard. This interest in observing and understanding the vine drives him to change the vineyard with alternative solutions. Today, he is involved with several projects close to his heart, developping the experimentation of new varieties on our vineyards and research of new Terroirs for the Cru Vallet.
Amélie, the ambassador of our wines
The contact is in her nature. As a child, she walked in the barrels cellar with her father. Student, she hesitates between wine and trade. Finally, she turns to international trade. When Bernard asked her to join her in spring 2006, the decision was obvious. Amélie imposes her feminine personality. For her, the wine means relationship. She therefore increases her visits on the markets to meet our importers, to create new relationships and to present our wines. With success, her ambition is now to show all the nobility of Muscadet worldwide.
