Produit par le premier domaine viticole en biodynamie en France. Matthieu Bouchet est le fils de François Bouchet qui s'occupa de la reconversion de Huet, Coulée de Serrant et de plein d'autres domaines aujourd'hui reconnus.

Vinification naturelle, avec une très faible dose de SO2 à l'embouteillage.

Dégustation : la robe est or clair, brillante, avec une effervescence assez marquée à l'ouverture. Le nez est fermé, laissant s'échapper entre les notes de réduction des fruits blancs rôtis et une pointe de volatile. La bouche est longilligne, étirée par une fine acidité traçante, tout en offrant une matière très mûre, confite – mais fraîche et digeste – soulignée et tonifiée par des milliers de micro-bulles crépitantes. La finale est triple A+++, avec l'Acidité traçante qui poursuit sa route, l'Amertume triomphante de l'agrume confit, et l'Astrigence crayeuse du terroir de Montreuil-Bellay. Ce trio contrebalance efficacement une sucrosité séveuse étonnante, avec une touche perlante finale qui apporte du peps.

"Nous avons pris la décision de ne plus présenter notre chenin à l'agrément. Ce dernier devient de plus en plus compliqué avec l'INAO. Leurs critères de "qualité " ne sont pas du tout les mêmes que les nôtres ! Nous avons de très vieilles vignes (notre chenin a 90 ans ) et travaillons dans la plus pure tradition , mais c'est nous qui apparaissons comme marginaux ! " 

What is an author wine?

This can be so diverse depending on the personality of their sire, that it is easier to define what it is not. An author wine is anything but a standard, stereotypical wine, made to please as many people as possible. It is therefore rarely produced in millions of copies, copying itself from vintage in vintage.

An author wine is therefore a wine that does not look like that of the neighbor. Which from year to year will evolve according to the vagaries of the weather and the mood of the author - the two that can be linked. Because the author does not rely on market studies to carry out his boat. He makes his wine as he feels, as he likes, as he can, sometimes ... and too bad if he does not please everyone.

This is why author wines are sometimes classified as "table wine" or "France wine". Because the winemaker did not plan the authorized grape variety*, makes the assembly or vinification recommended in the name **. He is often a bit rebellious, our author. But that is why we like it! ... That said, author's wines are not systematically marginal: they are present in most of the appellations, and can be part of the elite of these this***. Because they are not content to have personality: they are good, in addition! With in general aDegree of TorchabilityVery high: we never tire of it at the end of the first sip.

As author's wines are not chaptalized, levied, hacked ... They can have very different profiles depending on the vintage. It is up to us (resellers and consumers) to accept them as they are, and to remain faithful to the producers, because they need us to continue their activity.


* For example, theTouriga Nacionalin the Minervois, or theSyrahIn Forez ribs. They are crazy, these authors!

** Some winegrowers dare to produceSweety with Mourvèdre or oneNatural sparkling with Pineau d'Aunis

*** Like those of Jean-François Ganevat in the Jura or Zind-Humbercht in Alsace
