Thérèse and Michel Riouspeyrous, who are now quietly handing over the estate to their sons Iban and Théo, can be proud of their success on their family estate. They have become the reference for Basque wines and perhaps even for the whole of the South West.
Martin Bart delivers vintage after vintage of formidable Côtes de Nuits of great classicism, focused on the brilliance of their respective terroir.
Bernard Baudry seeks the silky and civilised dimension of Chinon wines, while remaining as close as possible to their expression of terroir. This approach, which he is now pursuing with his son Mathieu, is coupled with organic certification. A philosophy that also inspires them to plant non-grafted vines, free-standing for ten years (following the plantings of Charles Joguet in the 1980s), and to establish themselves on new forgotten terroirs, such as the excellent Clos Guillot in Chinon. Their Croix Boissée (clay-limestone terroir in Cravant-les-Coteaux), built for ageing, has an extra velvety and sometimes sweetness in hot years, which is not to be disliked by great lovers of Saint-Émilion wines. This cuvée naturally takes the lead among the great reds of Touraine.
Champagne Bollinger, a virtuoso of Champagne wines
Discover the Provencal nuggets of Raymond de Villeneuve. His vineyard is located near Roquefort-la-Bédoule at the foot of the Sainte-Baume Massif, with an organic culture and a real work of the soil (certified Ecocert in 2014). The wines are really captivating and of an excellent level, with digestible whites, chiselled rosés, and reds that are always concentrated, fine and perfumed. A gourmet and profound approach to be praised...

"Located near Jongieux in the picturesque village of Aimavigne, at the foot of the vertiginous Marestel hillside, the Dupasquier family has been cultivating their vines for five generations with good reason (grassing down, no synthetic products). (...) The Roussette Marestel is the great wine of the estate, capable of improving over 30 to 40 years of ageing in good vintages with an astonishing diversity of flavours, without losing its freshness. With a little rebalancing, the estate could quickly climb up our hierarchy..."

Frédéric Ribes has made Domaine Le Roc the spearhead of the Fronton appellation. Very interesting wines because they have a very singular personality, due in particular to the use of the local grape variety, the négrette, which dazzles by its singularity, its character and its greediness on its heady notes of blackberry, pepper, black olive, violet. Fine and pure wines, very fragrant, to be discovered urgently, in particular the greedy Folle Noire d'Ambat and the more ambitious cuvée Don Quichotte...
The Marcel Lapierre estate is located in the heart of the Beaujolais, in Villié-Morgon. Its particularity of having adopted organic farming, surprising 30 years ago, has today convinced many followers in the region. All the wines of the estate have the Marcel Lapierre "touch", natural, authentic wines, sometimes without any added sulphite, which draw their intrinsic quality from soils cultivated with the deepest respect for nature.
