In 2015, Philippe Chevarin embarked on a second career: after having worked as a musician and sound engineer alongside such stars as Dominique A. and Vanessa Paradis, he found himself leaving it all to pursue a divine idyll in the world of wine! The revelation came from an encounter with the great winemaker Thierry Puzelat – or more specifically with a bottle of Puzelat’s Le Buisson Pouilleux cuvée, in which he rediscovered the perfume and taste of the juice flowing straight out of the press... an epiphany indeed! After training in viticulture and natural winemaking, notably with Jacques Carroget of Domaine de la Paonnerie in Muscadet, he settled in Oudon in the Côteaux d'Ancenis. With friends like fellow Loire winemaker Jacques Février, organic viticulture is naturally the rule for Philippe, who cultivates five hectares of Melon de Bourgogne, Gamay, Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon. With time, his winemaking approach has only grown in precision, and the cuvées of this young vigneron now enjoy real success.
