This is one of the paradoxes of Champagne: vines planted on hillsides in poor, chalky soil and subsoil, exposed to a northern climate with alternating oceanic and continental influences, produce here high quality grapes remarkable for their outstanding finesse.
The identity of our House is profoundly rooted in the land of Champagne, in its hilly landscapes, its chalk and its villages. Young as it may be in Champagne history terms, thanks to its 1,800 winegrowers, Jacquart boasts a terroir as vast as it is unique, covering 2,400 ha, to shape its wines with a very contemporary elegance. For over 10 years, the Alliance Champagne Group has been committed to sustainable vinegrowing, an innovation in Champagne.
Nothing does greater justice to the history of our house – spanning three generations in Chaumuzy – than the fragile wicker nacelle with an inflated sail. Flying over Champagne in a hot-air balloon, as we like to do, anchors us down to this terroir. We take it to heart to express tradition and exception through the quality and finesse of our productions. Our family passion for traveling in hot-air balloons is akin to that which makes us gather in the vineyards, around the great grape press and in the cellars where we elaborate the cuvées of the house Salmon.
Château BeauBois, take origin to the XIII Century.The Cistercian monks of the Franquevaux Abbey had discovered a fabulous terroir , they cleared the forest for implanting vines and olive trees.
Fanny and François Boyer are the 4th generation to take care of the vineyard in the southern AOP from Rhône Valley. Sister and brother who work together with combined competences and skills.
In 2009, François started the organic farming process in this 51 hectares vineyard.
Fanny, the winemaker, added touch of femininity and exigent requirements to each year’s BeauBois wine . Her wine-making method enhances the freshness, fruitiness and adds an elegant touch to the taste.
In 1830, Etienne Baldès planted his first plots of Cahors vineyards at the Clos Triguedina, having spotted the best terraces of the Lot valley.
The vineyard, partially destroyed by phylloxera in 1877, was subsequently replanted. Protected by its microclimate, it was only partially affected by the severe frost in 1956 which threatened the entire renaissance of good Cahors wines. As a result, it has been able to preserve relatively old vines for the top-of-the-range growths.
Triguedina is a unique estate which spreads over four communes to the west of the town of Cahors: Puy l’Evêque (capital of the Cahors wine region), Vire sur Lot, Floressas and Touzac. Tucked within the
bends of the River Lot the family estate covers nearly 70 hectares. The soil, in terraces of siliceous clay and clay-and-limestone, similar to that in the famed Pomerol region, is ideal for the production of wines of Classed Growth status.
Jean-Luc Baldès is now in charge of the estate and has taken the wines to the top level in Cahors.
"We are constructing for the future, not giving into fashion, things which have a faddish product life..."
What a long way we have come since 1993... With La Solitude, I feel as if we have started to trace a path, with the aim of staying true to the terroir, in perfect harmony with the surroundings and the regional lifestyle.
We are a family of vigneron located in the village of Naujan et Postiac, deeply rooted in the Entre Deux Mers within Bordeaux.
The Entre Deux Mers takes its name from the sustainable oceanic influence recalled by an extraordinary wave travelling inland onto the Dordogne and Garonne rivers at tide changes : the Mascaret. This gives a unique character and local identity to naturally balanced wines.
We humbly follow rhythm of nature, making all right decision at the right time, in the right place.
With our children, we live in the middle of our vineyards and promote biodiversity, distinctive viticulture management on higher density plants to convey natural acids and minerals to our grapes and enhance climate expression in the wines.The best of each of us is in every of our bottle. So when one is opened in Paris, London , Helsinki or Tokyo entirely fulfills the wine lover, then our mission will be accomplished and our goal will have been reached.
Located and operating in the Loire Valley since 1872, Loire Propriétés produces and markets a wide variety of Loire wines. Renowned for the quality of our often award-winning wines, Loire Propriétés is a key player in the wine industry. From vine to glass, we oversee the entire process and work hard to keep our people and the environment at the top of our priorities.
The cooperative is above all a human adventure around values of sharing, solidarity, democracy, responsibility, proximity and conviviality. On the one hand, our winegrowers give the best of themselves to produce the finest grapes and on the other hand, our teams ensure impeccable customer service. In any case, we put the human being at the heart of our concerns.
The wineries also have a duty to pass on their cultural, viticultural and Loire heritage to future generations. For over thirty years, companies within the Loire Propriétés group have therefore helped promote over 5,000 hectares of vines. The impact on the community of the jobs created structures the region’s economy.
