Alexandre’s story in wine began with his Grandfather who farmed grapes in Tracy sur Loire, Pouilly-Fumé. After leaving school he worked for Matthieu Coste before taking over an old vineyard planted in the late 70’s in 2007. Since day one Alexandre has been farming organically (now Eco certified and Demeter certified) with the help of his horse called Phénomène and one full-time assistant. A true vigneron, having all wines produced from estate fruit only and vinified and bottled on site too.
100% Sauvignon, cultivated on calcareous Portlandian soils (135 million years), with a thin layer of sandy clay soil and a strong stoniness which brings a lot of roundness. Vines planted in 1977. Regarding winemaking, nothing technological or oenological: indigenous yeasts, no addition of enzymes, the wines are neither fined nor filtered. Precious Stone receives a tiny amount of sulfur when put: 1 g / hl. Yields: 35 hl / ha. Aging in vats 14 months. The estate is certified organic and biodynamic.
A ripe Sauvignon, with notes of acacia honey, cane sugar, elderberry. Fluid, refreshing palate, focused on freshness.
