In short

Originally from Givors, my father, François, qualified in winemaking in Beaune before coming to work the Côte-Rôtie in the early 70s.

He earned his stripes with Vidal Fleury and the Domaine de Bonserine, buoyed by the pace with which the vineyard was reborn. He doggedly cleared and replanted most of the vines himself.

He began to produce his own Côte-Rôtie from the 1980 vintage onwards: a single vintage made from four parcels all planted between 1925 and 1990. The Terroir du Mollard (near the Côte Blonde) gives our Côte-Rôtie its mineral character, its finesse, and delicate fruitiness, and its acidity makes it a great wine for ageing, while the parcels to the north of Ampuis (La Viallère, La Brosse and La Landonne) structure the blend making it richer with a peppery note.

In 2004, I joined the family vineyard to help my father, spending the low season working in other vineyards to learn more about winemaking to enrich the family's expertise.

Running the vineyard since 2013, I take great care to respect our traditions and our terroirs. Every new vintage brings something new, and I look forward to offering you a taste of our wines.
