Antoine Foucault is the son of the late Charly Foucault of the famed Foucault brothers behind Clos Rougeard. In 1999, with his partner Caroline, he founded Domaine du Collier, which takes its name from Place du Collier where the family home is located.
Vineyards are farmed organically and a natural approach is carried into the cellar with a commitment to wild yeast fermentation, extended ageing without racking in a very cold underground cellar, and zero sulfur until bottling.
Antoines desire to truly understand and express his terroirs is evident in the wines, which have garnered the attention and admiration of Cabernet Franc devotees and Chenin cognoscenti with their power, mineral character, and ethereal lift. They are complex and powerful without lacking delicacy and precision. These are wines that often transcend grape variety in their deep expression of the limestone of Brézé. We have only seen the beginning of what Antoine Foucault and these terroirs are capable of!
