Fred, a novice at winegrowing but an unparalleled taster, knows exactly what he wants and what he intends to do for wine here in the Muscadet, alongside Guy. Folle Blanche and Melon de Bourgogne have been transformed, along with the estate’s classic cuvées still being made, into very great natural wines, made with little to no sulphites.

After all, when your parcels are 30 to 40 years old and have never seen a single drop of pesticides, it would be a shame to deprive yourself! The estate even does some vinifications using amphorae. The knowledge and wisdom of Guy and the energy and modernity of Fred. Fred has taken his estate in a whole new direction, and Muscadet along with it...
