After marrying a French girl, the daughter of a winegrower in Champagne, the family decided to settle down in France.
After some searching for the right terroir, they bought a domain of 25 ha. in Le Barroux.21 ha are in production now and furthermore 5 ha which are rented.
2007 was his first vintage at the place.

The vineyards are certified agriculture biologique since 2012 and use some elements of agriculture biodynamique.


Mainly Grenache and what is available of Syrah, Cinsalt, Carignan. Partly aged in older barrels.

When the vintage is especially good for Grenache one or another special cuvée may be made (such as in 2007, 2010 - maybe 2012? probably also 2016?)

Ventoux Hesiod
