Olivier began tending his family’s vines at the young age of 14 in the Loire valley. Craving broader winemaking knowledge, Olivier left the Loire for Bordeaux four years later, which led him to other internships in Jurançon and Beaujolais. In 2000 Olivier settled in Calce, a small village in the Pyrénées-Orientales in southern France. Vines grow in limestone and schist soils. The juice is fermented in steel and aged in large neutral demi-muids (big old barrels) for 8 months. This fruit-forward and palate-coating white wine shows flavors of juicy pear, stone fruit, verbena and wet rocks.
