Young growers like Nicolas, who are seeking out and rediscovering the great, noble grapes of the past that (mostly for political and economic reasons) have been abandoned in favor of the more well known grapes of France. Nicolas discovered the 'cépages anciens' while working at Domaine Tempier in Bandol, where he found a book that outlined the great old grapes of all the regions of France. Nicolas was hooked, and he now spends his weekends seeking out old vineyards in France to find cuttings of these grapes.
