House founded in 2003

One of the widest selections of the web of authors' wines and craftsmen


Après un BTS viti oenologie obenu en 2012, Geoffrey de Noüel a travaillé un an chez Pascal Ricotier à Crissay sur Manse, puis 3 ans au chateau de Coulaine (Etienne de Bonnaventure). En 2016, il a repris le clos de la Peuvrie.

Le vignoble certifié BIO a une surface de 10 hectares, comprend majoritairement du cabernet franc, mais aussi du côt, du chenin et du chardonnay.

Le Bois Bonnard est une cuvée 100 % Cabernet-Franc issue d'une parcelle d'argile à silex exposée nord (30 ans). La vinification, en partie en cuve, le reste en barrique de 5 ans, est la moins interventionniste possible : pas de levure exogène ni intrant à part le SO2 en dose très faible. L'élevage est de 12 mois en fûts de plusieurs vins, suivi de 6 mois en cuve après assemblage.

Dégustation : la robe est rubis sombre translucide. Le nez est fin, élégant, sur les fruits noirs patinés et des notes nobles d'élevage. La bouche est ronde, ample, enrobante, avec une matière concentrée au toucher fin, racé, avec un boisé bien intégré.

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
