Notes on the producer
Based in the hamlet of Corcelette Daniel is a hardworking, humble, discreet and sometimes anxious vigneron. He prefers a solitary life and happily spends 12 hours a day working on his diverse and exceptional terroirs, taking care of old (60-100yo) bush vines traditionally planted at high density. All of this by hand on steep slopes where no tractor could go. All his grapes are hand-harvested and vinified with full clusters and natural yeasts in concrete vat with two pump overs per day. The wines are then aged in old foudres in a tiny cellar, Daniel follows them through élevage with great care and bottles them without filtration.
