We were introduced to Jeremy by our good friend Olivier Lemasson.  Jeremy worked with Olivier for a few years and managed to grab a couple hectares of land not far from Olivier's main plot in the Loir et Cher, not far from Cheverny.  Before that, Jeremy learned the trade at Marcel Lapierre's winery and did a six-month internship at Clos Ouvert in Chile.  In four vintages, he has shown that he can make clean, highly drinkable wines with very little sulphur dioxide.  Jeremy is still a young vigneron and, in our opinion, he gets better every year.

In 2016 Jeremy lost a fair amount of his harvest due to hail, and to supplement his production he purchased Syrah form Anne Leclerc in the Roussillon. All of the grapes are certified organic and come from sandy soils. One week of maceration yields a light-bodied, yet silky wine that exudes energy and freshness with a touch of smoke.
