Clay & limestone

Mathias and Camille are a young couple whose skill at winemaking is beyond their years.  They took over their 12 hectare estate from Mathias’s parents in 2008 and immediately started to work the vines organically. In 2010 they started working with Biodynamics. Their vines are planted on a plateau of limestone and clay and two hills – one of limestone and clay with a fine topsoil and the other limestone and flint. They grow Sauvignon Blanc and Gris, Ugni blanc and Semillon for white, and Merlot and Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon for red. They have some very old Merlot vines and the average age of their vines is 45 years. Their wines have extraordinary depth but are still playful.
