A contemporary approach to wine, which is focused on the search for exeptional fruit and authenticity . Wines you will enjoy with a great ‘drinkability’ factor.
A range of wines of extraordinary vintage, which stands out from the typical Fiefs Vendéens wine. Incredibly fruity wines which are easy to drink as an aperitif.
CLOS SAINT ANDRÉ
Clos Saint André started out as a childhood dream for Jeremie Mourat. It began as a blank canvas on a historically rich wine-growing land previously owned by the Tattinger Family, and had laid under a thick covering of brambles and broom since 1968.
With its rich sub soil of meta-rhyolites, Clos Saint André is almost exclusively dedicated to the production of a full-bodied white wine.
Since 2007 we have focused on using a selection of Negrette vines – an ancient black grape variety unique to the region – for our Grenouilliere vintage which is our flagship wine of our ‘Grande Cuvée de Garde’.
This domain has been in organic production since 2006.
The symbolic windmill which was burnt down during the Vendée wars and has recently been fully restored overlooks the vineyard on its hillside landscape. Mostly made up of old Pinot Noir vines, Moulin Blanc benefits from the rich clay land which helps increase the maturity of the Pinot Noirs in order to preserve their freshness.
This has resulted in a wine with a rich and fruity freshness. This domain has been engaged in organic production since 2011.

LES BÊTES CURIEUSES
In May 2005, Jérémie Huchet and Jérémie Mourat meet and a true friendship is born. Bound with the same energy , the two Jeremy’s endeavour to work together to realise their common passion of creating a new South Loire wine. Normally made from the Chenin Grape, this time they choose the mature Melon de Bourgogne grape to create this unique and exciting wine variety.
LE GRAND ÉCART
Influence by a hot, yet moderate climate, tempered with a sea breeze, Chenin has been grown here since the 17th century on the red soils consisting of gravelly clay. South African Stellenboche is a magnificent wine-producing region where the old Chenin vines are driven by a ‘bush’ vine to protect them from fertiliser sprays. The harvesting is done manually and the wine is matured in oak casks.
