“Soon after I took over the family estate, I became interested in the Seyssuel vineyards. I knew some owners there very well and I immediately fell in love with the hills, the terroir and its potential for producing great wines. I planted my first vines in 2001.”
My family has been in Ampuis for many generations and has always worked in the vineyards. When I took over from my father Michel in 1998, I decided to carry out precision work on our different terroirs to bring out the unique character of these places, which are so rich in history. Working so close to the vines, we strive to bring out the typical elegance of the appellation. In this way, our range remains true to our roots and is for us the fruit of a long history and of exciting day-to-day work. The wish to cross the Rhone was too strong… On the steep slopes of Seyssuel, the similarities seemed obvious… I knew I’d found the soul mate (ame soeur) of the land near my village.
