At a time when modern oenology triumphs (a good or an evil, you see), we often tend to forget that a great wine is conceived primarily in the vineyard: plowing the soil, controlled yields, disbudding, duplication, manual harvesting and respect for the biotope. Avant-gardist, the domain of the Ecu is certified in organic agriculture since 1975 and biodynamic since 1998 (Demeter) on all of its 24 hectares. We are also certified Biodyvin since 2014. We have renounced all technological artifice in the cellar to break with the movement of standardization of wines and preserve the link uniting each of our cuvées to a terroir and a vintage. Yeasting, enzymage, thermo-vinification, relaxation fashing, reverse osmosis and other processes tending towards the standardization of wines and the production of soulless wines are not allowed to be mentioned in our cellars. Our wines are without So2 added or sulphited to a minimum, by conviction, with So2 levels around 30/40 mg / L, more than 2 times less than the threshold allowed by the Demeter standard (90 mg / L). is itself already very restrictive against the standard Bio (150 mg / L) and the European standard (210 mg / L and there is no typo ...). Obviously, we wanted to remind you here: we make wines, real wines without any frills or extreme make-up! As such, we are proud to be part of the groups of winemakers in Biodynamie "Renaissance Appellations" and "Biodyvin" who both advocate respect for the terroir and this search for pure wine, without makeup or deception ... Our vintages of terroir are today present on the most beautiful tables of the world. From the Noma (best restaurant in the world) to the Bernardin in NY (3 ***) or the Astrance in Paris (3 ***), the chefs trust us and showcase our wines. No need to be starry to work well, so you will find our wines in many gourmet and bistronomic restaurants held by chefs who love local products and attached to quality products. We also do not want to look for our wines in supermarkets, we refuse to use these channels of distribution dedicated to the wines of mass opposite our philosophy of work ... You will find so our wines a little everywhere in France with wine merchants passionate, in love with the bottle and able to bring you the advice that will allow you to leave with the bottle that will give you pleasure. The circle is complete.
