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.
Intensely golden in colour and slightly cloudy. The wine opens with a deep, very intense and super ripe fruit intermixed with elderflower aromas. Full-bodied, rich and round on the palate, this is a clear and elegant wine with a vital, finely racy Sauvignon acidity—as well as a pure and dry finish with salt, grip and character. This is a persistent, mineral-structured Vin de France that would have been a decoration for the Pouilly-Fumé appellation.
