Jean-Christophe is brand-new to the winemaking world having just released his first vintage (a pét-nat rosé) in 2019. For years he has grown organic grapes on his beautiful property in Faverolles-sur-Cher, overlooking the Cher river and sold them to winemakers in the surrounding area. Before striking off on his own, JC staged with Pascal and Moses of Les Capriades, Hervé Villemade, and Jerome Lenoir.
Sourced from two different parcels, one of younger vines on clay the other old vines on limestone, it is pressed then fermented in tank. After this it is raised in neutral oak barrels for around eighteen months before bottling. This will be arguably one of the top wines at the domaine.
