Domaine Camille Braun

On the road of wines, in the heart of the vineyard of Alsace, is located a peaceful village of Orschwihr, home to the Braun family. At the top of the unusual hill of Bollenberg, the chapel peaks and overlooks this village. All around extends the family vineyard in the prestigious terroirs of Pfingstberg, Bollenberg et Lippelsberg. In 1960, Camille Braun decided to stop polyculture to focus on the most beautiful of all, viticulture. 27 years later, he entrusted the responsibility of the estate to his children, Christophe et Marie-Laure. Today, the vines extend to the village of "Uffholtz", birthplace of Chantal, the wife of Christopher. The 30 plots are cultivated biodynamically and the 8 grape varieties are vinified separately in various containers (vats, barrels, casks or porcelain jar) according to the terroirs of origin. The estate's wines express themselves with a great honesty and a perfect balance.

;;;;;;;;;;;..................................................;;Julien Ferran

Located in the vineyard of Entre-Deux-Mers, in the heart of the appellation "Haut Benauge", on the hill of "Tucaou" (pronounce Tuquo) culminates an exclusive vineyard with a privileged location. Acquired by the Ferran family in 1976, the estate has evolved since the arrival of Julien in 2007. With the help of his parents, Béatrice and Alain, this biologist by trade never ceases to select, monitor and understand this terroir by observing the native flora growing in the rows to analyze the characteristics and deduct the best way to work the soil (replanting, new rootstock). Here we still plow, the young plots with horses, and this, as always, without fuss. Here we stimulate the life of the soil, we treat the vines with precision. That's why some parcels of Merlot are over 50 years old. Members of "Renaissance des Appellations", the Ferrans now incorporate the methods of Biodynamics. Their wines are intensely delicate and tasteful, they express with sincerity the characteristics of a respected soil.

;;;;;;;;;;;;;Nicolas Despagne


Rooted in the land of Saint-Emilion for over three centuries, the Despagne family is involved in the works of the vine and wine for at least 11 generations. In 1972, by intheritance, the family took charge of part of the vineyards acquired by Louis Rapin between 1938 and 1964 in Montagne, Saint Emilion, Pomerol and Libourne. Heir to a long tradition, Nicolas Despagne enthusiastically defends his ethics dedicated to preserving the environment, the wine quality and authenticity. In his book "Carnet of Harvest", he captures the birth of the great 2005 vintage through the Châteaux Maison Blanche, Tour de Corbin-Despagne and La Rose Figeac which were all under his charge with his sister, Nathalie. Diary of a harvest, unusual and special, this book demonstrates the sincerity of its author, an exceptional winegrower. Assisted by Nicolas Despagne closed the trend started in 2013 with a biodynamic certification. The prestigious wines that he produces with such humility are incredibly authentic. Member of "Renaissance des Appellations" in 2017.

;;;;.............;Raphaël Saint-Cyr


Since arriving at the estate in 2008, Raphaël Saint-Cyr, representing the fourth generation of winemakers in his family, has continuously worked to develop and grow his parent's estate: conversion to organic agriculture, single vineyard cuvées aged on fine lees for extended time (6 to 18 months), wild yeasts, finely-tuned extraction - a far cry from the Beaujolais primeurs. As part of the new, dynamic and ambitious generation of winemakers in the region, Raphaël strives above all else to make his Beaujolais wines the most authentic representation of their famous pierres dorées (golden stones) terroir. His cuvées are elegant and superbly refined, the fruit structure is balanced and the body is soft and lush. The biodynamic approach is on mind. Raphaël is meticulous about his vines, and his wife Karine is eager to support him in this transition. A great winemaker in the making, one to discover without hesitation.

................Jean-Christophe Bersan

It is in Saint-Bris le Vineux, in the Grand Auxerrois vineyard in the north of Burgundy, that Jean-Christophe Bersan strives to give the most beautiful expression to his magnificent Burgundy terroir of 21 hectares including 6 historic grape varieties that give an exceptional facet to the vineyard. Here, we cultivate great whites (Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Aligoté) and great reds (Pinot Noir, César, Gamay) without complex and with generosity! Rich in know-how cultivated for several generations, Jean-Christophe will nevertheless have marked the history of the family estate in 2009 by forcing the conversion to organic farming. Supported by his father Jean-Louis, he slowly oriented his work in the cellar towards increasingly natural vinifications (indigenous yeasts, very few sulphites). Long agings (in barrels or in stainless steel vats) are now perfectly mastered and the wines produced promise a nice taste journey. Like the underground cellar of the estate, the move upmarket is as beautiful as it is surprising.

;;;......;;;;Jean-Pierre, Corinne et Eve Grossot

Located on slopes, between Chablis and Tonnerre, where the small village of Fleys overlooks the 1st Crus "Vaucoupin", "Mont de Milieu" and "Les Fourneaux", Corinne Grossot never stops  admiring the craggy landscapes made of stony ground. With her husband Jean-Pierre and daughter Eve, they produce wines  with a beautiful texture offering great mineral emotions. The 18 hectares of vineyards owned by the Grossot family since the 1920’s are major references of the Chablis region. The cellar is equipped with modern facilities  such as double-bottomed tubs, a sorting table and two pneumatic presses.  The juice  is extracted by gravity  in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats. The  juice is then  sent  to 2 wineries : one  dedicated to the current vintage and the other  to the aging of the previous vintage.  Maturing takes between 9  and 18 months to  produce successful Chablis wines   with a perfect balance.  Oak barrels  are carefully used (30% maximum),  to enhance the fruit  underlined by the saltiness of the oyster fossil, the jewel of Chablis.

Pure jewel of the Mâconnais, the Cornin estate produces exceptional wines. Owner of 10 hectares of vineyards on the fabulous terroirs of Chaintré and Fuissé, Dominique has been working in organic farming since 1993, already convinced at the time that the priority is not yield, but obtaining healthy grapes, full of Terroir, thanks to living soils and vines that regain their own vital energy. In 2011, his son Romain joined his father to take care of winemaking. Aware that the family vineyard, made up of 30 parcels, is based on a real geological millefeuille, alternating marls, clays and limestones more or less hard, he makes the choice to focus on soft aging in oak. His leitmotiv: the purest expression of Chardonnay and the nuances of each terroir. The wines of the estate are elegant and intense, with almost airy precision, a guaranteed high-level tasting.

At the gates of the beautiful Pyrenees Orientales, facing the Mediterranean coast, between fragrant garrigue and sun-soaked vineyards, lies in the region of Languedoc the village of Ferrals les Corbières. In its historical centre is located the Ledogar estate. For 3 generations, the Ledogar family has cultivated 18 hectares of vines, issued from an amazing variety of different grapes, with surprisingly very old roots (60 to 120 years). Planted all around the village, on the precious terroir of Boutenac, the family vineyard is cultivated organically, with biodynamic herbal medicine for some plots. In 1998, the family estate emancipated itself from the local cooperative and vinified its first wines at the initiative of its successor, Xavier Ledogar. Assisted by his brothers Mathieu and Benoit, he strove to produce "pure blood" Corbières. Today, the brothers have found their style and grow with excellence the fruit, the sun and the freshness. Members of the association "Change the Aude county into wine", the young dynamic winegrowers campaign for an authentic expression of their terroir. Engaged artisans with a big heart, they are certainly part of the rising stars of the appellation Corbieres.

.. ......... ;Vincent Caillé.


In the heart of the appellation Muscadet Sevre et Maine, at le Fay d'Homme near Monnières, the Caillé family have been winegrowers for 5 generations. Vincent Caillé, who took over the family vineyard in 1986, is part of a new generation of winegrowers who decided to pursue a policy of uncompromising quality. With the stubbornness of passion, he produces Muscadet Sevre et Maine of high expression. On different type of soils (gneiss, gabbro and orthogneiss), he works the land with tillage or natural grass. Grown "organically" since 1996, the vines blossom on living soils that have recovered their wild tulips, a protected species affected for a long time by chemical treatments in the region. Vincent Caillé is one of the few winegrowers from Nantes who produce "organic" Muscadet, a true priesthood due to the oceanic climate and the propensity of Melon to welcome mildew. In the cellar, he vinifies his wines in the traditional way with indigenous yeast and long aging on lees. His wines, with angelic prices, are of remarkable density and sensitivity that restore the image of a resurgent appellation.

...........; Antoine Gouffier.

Located on the right bank of the Loire river, the Domaine du Bouchot was the first area certified organic farming AOP Pouilly Fumé in 2009. Its 10 hectares of vines from the Sauvignon grape are planted on the south-west side of the hill from the village of Saint Andelain, the soils are mainly clay and limestone from the Kimmeridgian. The configuration of the estate, isolated in the center of its vineyards, allows a very precise biodynamic work, the vinifications that follow are done with a little intervention and the wines produced express the finesse of a preserved terroir. 2018 marks the arrival of Antoine Gouffier, young winemaker and child of the village, who takes over from the Kerbiquet family with great energy. By going around the world, this backpacker decided, like Ulysse, to return home. After 12 years between New York, California, Argentina, Africa and the Middle East, between trade, commerce and catering, he still had to settle in an area. His young wife helped him there. Soon she will be part of the affair. With Pascal Kerbiquet, his mentor, prophet of Bio and Pygmalion of biodynamics, he found his haven in Bouchot: the semi-solitude of the craftsman for a fan of discoveries... Plantations of vines, renovation of the cellar, purchases of tuns and amphora, new orange vintage, makeover of the skins ... it's moving at Bouchot ! To discover and follow closely.

...............;Cyril de Benoist.

Around the village of St. Gemme is located a beautiful 17th century property. At its centre radiates a majestic castle, the Nozay. Acquired by the De Benoist family at the end of the 19th century, the area became a vineyard in 1971 when Philippe and Marie-Helène decided to plant vines. Today, 15 hectares of Sauvignon surround the castle. This isolated and preserved environment is an exception in the Sancerre region. Cyril de Benoist, aware of his privilege, applies himself to extracting its quintessence. After gaining experience at Bouzeron with his uncle Aubert de Villaine, the current co-manager of the legendary Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, he joined the family estate in 1991. Careful of whatever he does, the meticulous winegrower is constantly listening to his vineyard, seeking to understand its soil to better support it. In his cellar, surprisingly dug into a north exposed mound, he vinifies his wines in the traditional way. His Sancerre are remarkably intense. The Nozay estate remains a family winery, isolated in a haven of peace and tranquility. The wine made there is totally like him.

...............Alexandre, Raphaël, Sébastien Latz


At the entrance of the Gorges Bagorèse, on the right bank of the Argens, an enchanting turquoise blue reflections river overhung by beautiful steep cliffs, is Correns, a village in the Provence countryside, outside the national roads. A few miles away is located the Château Aspras that tells a beautiful story about the meeting between a family and a terroir : 50 years ago, Gottfried and Lisa Latz left the Belgian Congo, landed in the south of France and settled in Correns in Provence where they discovered their passion about wine. The family shortly bought some parcels of vines and during many years sold the grapes to the negoce. In 1971, when Michael Latz, agricultural engineer by training, joined his widowed mom for help, the first bottles are marketed and Château Aspras is born. Today, Michael is helped by his 3 sons Raphael, Alexandre and Sébastien : "les 3 frères". Robert Nourrisson, vineyard manager, left the neighbor Miraval to work the terroir of Aspras and move to the biodynamy.
Aspras honors this exceptional terroir with secular fame, whose Benedictine monks of Montmajour had already acknowledged the unique wine growing potential in the 13th century. The limestone hills that surround the area gave it its name "asper" - (aspera, rockery in Latin).
This land is cultivated in organic farming, to 95 % today. An initiative of Mayor Michael Latz , who gathered the habitants of Correns in early 1995. Today, the village of Correns is the 1st ORGANIC village of France, stands out for its militant commitment to preserve biodiversity and offer a quality of life to its inhabitants by favoring the collective spirit of solidarity with local actors.
The Château Aspras takes the Latz family's motto : "Know thyself" (te ipsum nosce). The work of their soil and in their cellar is guided by the determination to product organic wines with a true reflection of its exceptional .

...................;Vianney et Alexis Madelin.




The founders of the Maddam brewery are two cousins, Alexis and Vianney Madelin, both of whom grew up in Burgundy. Alexis had previously worked in the vineyards in Châteauneuf du Pape, in Australia and then in Chablis for many years, while Vianney, after completing his woodworking studies, turned towards artistic design and creation for famous Champagne houses and renowned distilleries. Driven by a determination to offer high quality, artisanal French beers, and by a desire to return to their native lands, in 2016 the two cousins decided to renew the Burgundian brewing tradition in a land where wine is king, in the very heart of Chablis! Their beers are modern, 100% artisanal and organic. They are brewed with various, hand-selected types of barley, all of which are grown in Burgundy, and using patiently elaborated and jealously guarded recipes inspired by refined and generous gastronomical brews. Maddam beers are all-natural, non-filtered and non-pasteurized, created by a unique brewing method of 60 days (fermentation in steel vats between 68 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit, bottling with a light addition of sugar and yeast, second fermentation at 77 degrees Fahrenheit lasting two weeks, labeling and ageing in bottle for two weeks before release). The finely crafted Maddam beers stand out from other French beers due a delicate head, their fine bubbles and their smooth and finely balanced texture on the palate
