House founded in 2003

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



 Dans les Vignes : Les vignes sont taillées en Guyot simple et en Cordon de Royat. 7 500 pieds/ha Le vignoble est cultivé selon les méthodes de l'Agriculture Biologique et de la Biodynamie.

Géologie : 80% Formation argileuse à silex supérieur 20% Calcaires de Buzançais sur Kimméridgien inférieur

Situation : Flanc de coteau exposé plein sud

"Mélodie" est élaborée à partir de vignes de plus de 40 ans.

Vinification : la vendange est éraflée puis acheminée au pressoir pneumatique par des tapis, pour la respecter au maximum. Fermentation en levures indigènes, en fûts de Chêne Français et élevage sur les lies de vendange pendant une dizaine de mois. Les travaux en cave se font au rythme du calendrier lunaire. Ce vin n'a subi aucun traitement, ni collage il peut donc présenter un dépôt ou des cristaux naturels en bouteille.

Dégustation : Nez sur l'orange confite, la vanille et les épices. Bouche sphérique à la matière opulente, équilibrée et tendue par une superbe acidité. L'ensemble est long complexe et terriblement gourmand.

Accords : gambas géantes laquées aux agrumes, ris de veau à l'orange.

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
