Fun facts:

  • Bruno & Thama, a former architect duo from Brazil, took the helm of the estate in 2016, fueled by the need to live a healthier life outside the hustle and bustle of Sao Paolo
  • The domaine is quite an old one, established in the late nineteenth century as the main winemaking operation of the village, and it’s been organic for more than 30 years
  • In 2019, the current owners converted the vineyards to biodynamics under Demeter certification and stopped using any additives in the cellar, save for a little sulfur at bottling
  • This new era is of course reflected on the labels, too, such as the ancient cyanotype technique by the couples friend, artist Amélie Cordier, on the wines we’ve selected
  • The name of the estate means “roads to Bassac”, referring to the name of the place where most of the estate’s vineyards are located

Grape: Roussanne

Vineyard: 15 years old vines on on limestone and clay originating from ancient Quaternary alluvial terraces at around 100 m altitude.

Winemaking: The grapes are gently pressed and a light debourbage by cold is made. The clear must is vatted for the fermentation which takes place in concrete tanks. After aging for 5 months the wine is bottled by gravity, without filtration or fining, with just a light sulfur addition.

FOOD PAIRING: all kinds of finger food and easy light dishes.
