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.

The vineyard is one plot composed of young vine Gamay, middle-aged Cot, and old vine Gamay on a gentle slope of clay over Silex.

L'Insurge, from old vine Gamay, is dark but highly drinkable, terroir-driven glou-glou. Made using carbonic maceration, without sulphur dioxide if the vintage allows.

100% Gamay from 2.4 Hectares in Monthou sur Bievre from Melissa Lavaysse, clay over eboulis calcaire, no so2 vinification, semi carbonic of 8/10 days in tank and raised in old barriques. This is the only wine made in the new cellar they are building and where ultimately everything will be vinified and raised in the future. - Selection Maissalle
