A maritime experience of more than a year on the island of Ré in collaboration with the Tonnellerie de Jarnac and the 3-star chef from La Rochelle, Christopher Coutanceau.
The staves, which were used to create two barrels, were left for a year at the seaside on the island of Ré, being watered regularly with sea water. A drying on the 4 seasons to assimilate all the maritime influences.

After 10 years spent in charge of the vineyard and the wine making in a famous natural domain of Saint-Romain, Maxime Crotet launched his own structure and brought in his first grapes this year. They are sourced from different wine growers on parcels that he and his team harvested themselves.
Maxime diversifies through several grape varieties: Carignan, Syrah, Grenache, Pinot Noir, Gamay…. certified 100% organic grapes, a vinification in whole bunches and an ageing in barrels for a result with a lot of finesse and freshness. A style that would almost hint at the style of certain renowned winegrowers from Arbois or Tavel!
Benoît Girardin is a passionate young man from a family of winegrowers based in Santenay. After a BTS in wine in Beaune and a business degree in Bordeaux, which allowed him to create friendships with winemakers from all over France, he returned to the family winery in 2011 to work alongside his father Yves, who passed on his savoir-faire, his courage and his passion for the job.
In 2020, he created his own 8-hectare winery, after taking over family plots and buying back vineyards. These acquisitions allow him to express his own ideas in the vineyards and in the cellar. Benoît wishes to let nature do its work, in order to respect the terroirs as much as possible.
