A deep nose of blackberry, quetsche, and cherry stones, with subtle notes of undergrowth and prunes in brandy. Palate: ultra chewy, great volume, with just the right acidity to perfectly balance the alcohol. This juice is crafted for ageing.
Antonin Jamois, born in 1979 and originally from Paris, was in no way predestined to become a winegrower... After studying agronomy, he left for Argentina and Brazil, then settled for 10 years in Madagascar (hence the name of the Estate!) where he worked as an aquaculturist and as a scuba diver. It is the birth of his daughter that motivates him to come back to France in 2014. Antonin returns to his first love, wine, and this work of grower and producer "it’s the foundation of a society”. He then took over 0.8 ha in Lugasson in the Bordeaux terroir and converted the vines to organic farming. Learning everything on the job! It was the meetings with Renaud Guettier and Michel Favard that confirmed him that natural wine was the obvious way to make it. Since 2016, the estate has 2.3 ha of vines, for a total of 6 ha of land, where he also cultivates ancient cereals and fruit trees. A serene and intelligent approach, for wines that finally shake up the traditional and strict codes of Bordeaux!
A wine of unique personality, with a nose of cherry, blackcurrant and redcurrant, plus lovely toasted notes. The palate is fluid, with tannins that accompany the fruit without getting in the way. A very lovey cuvée – a testament to what Bordeaux can be without all the sulphur!
