As we ob­serve a work of art, a pho­to­graph, wine is a paren­the­sis and a jour­ney through time, which be­longs only to one­self and to those with whom we share it.

This is «only» wine and yet it gen­er­ates so much emo­tion.

It is there­fore at the same time a prod­uct of the Earth, a prod­uct of la­bor, and a cre­ation, a form of ex­pres­sion and artis­tic in­ter­pre­ta­tion ... there­fore, very per­sonal.

Like wine, our pro­fes­sion of wine­maker is com­plex: we share be­tween sci­en­tific the­ory (factual and im­pla­ca­ble) and em­piri­cism which con­strains the ob­ser­va­tion of its en­vi­ron­ment and to lis­ten­ing to its soil.

Wine is a vec­tor of civ­i­liza­tion, of get­ting closer to one an­other; It is a hy­phen.

In a word, wine is shar­ing!

What was your last wine emo­tion?

«Cham­pagne Louis Roed­erer - Cristal 2009, Puligny Mon­tra­chet 1st Cru «Les Com­bettes» 2010 by Olivier Le­flaive, Château Lafite Roth­schild 1996, Château Pi­chon Longueville Comtesse de La­lande... And a special men­tion for a bot­tle of Cham­pagne Deutz BSA drunk a few days ago with fam­ily, Christ­mas night, some­where in the desert of Namibia.We were a few mil­lion: we four, some an­te­lope, dunes and stars.
