Two generations ago, the estate was only a small piece of land in addition to the polyculture and farming activities. It has really been developed by Christophe Boutet, who takes over the 7 ha-family estate in 1997 after his father’s death. He quickly develops his business towards individuals, wine boutiques and importers.
Since 2011, Christophe and his wife are truly committed to sustainable practices on their 12 ha vineyards. They grow, vinify and craft wines that represent themselves, lively and pleasant.
This Vouvray is produced according to the ‘méthode traditionnelle’ from Champagne. The liquor used to launch the second fermentation in bottle, is a personal recipe of Christophe made of a blend of his still wines. During the ageing, the owners perform a manual ridding of all the bottles: 20min in the morning and at night of 3800- 4200 bottles every 6 weeks.
