Damien and Coralie Délécheneau met as classmates in Bordeaux, while both studying for their oenology diplomas, and haven’t left each other since. After each separately gaining experience (with one of the oldest organic wine importers in the United States, then with the Beaujolais trade body, and finally in California for Madame, and training in Irancy at Domaine Verret, in Chablis at Domaine Laroche, in St. Estèphe, and in Napa Valley for Monsieur) they finally returned to Amboise in 2002 and settled at Damien’s family estate La Grange Tiphaine, which they’ve been running together since 2008. The couple has reorganised the estate to focus their viticulture on expressing terroir, and respecting nature. Damien, alongside his two vineyards workers, Mathieu and Jean-Rémy, works the vines year round, from winter pruning to fall harvest; and in the winery, oversees everything from vinification to bottling. Having marked her arrival at the estate with her cuvée “Quatre mains” (four hands), Coralie adds her talent and strength to that of with her husband, as well as a freshness and feminine touch which makes all of their wines so complete. Today, they make wines as sound as they are pure. Welcome to La Grange!
An elegant and complex nose, with notes of black fruits and pepper... Palate: a concentration of exceedingly drinkable fruit, with a silken texture and melted tannins. Should be opened two hours before tasting.
