Maxime is truly one of the movers and shakers in the wine world today. Pushing the natural wine movement forward and producing wines with integrity and personality. His property is in the South Eastern appellation of Corbiéres in the Languedoc-Roussillon region. Maxime understands that learning from the greats of the wine world gives you an unprecedented knowledge of the vineyard and winemaking, hence his time spent training with the famed Jean Foillard in Morgon. Truly a naturalist at heart, his wines show the terrior -- pure rock and garrigue, wild herbs and shrubs -- that covers this part of France.
Of all the French wines, Grenache Blanc is not often sought after. That's not the case with this so called "Mediterranean Meursault." It's full of saline and richness, but just enough minerality to keep this wine beyond exciting and one of our favorite bottles.
