Frédéric Brochet is a highly qualified winemaker and academic who decided to revamp an old, rather run down winery in an unlikely part of France (near Poitou), and establish himself as a benchmark producer of organic Sauvignon and Pinot Noir. In less than 15 years he's succeeded and his wines are a real testament to his diligence. The cellar is built into a cave that is over 1,000 years old yet everything is spotless, well maintained and very well equipped. The wines are truly impressive, especially when you consider that they don't come from a 'classic' area.
