Jeremy set up his winery in 2010 and with only 5 vintages behind him you would not believe it when tasting his wines. He had originally enrolled at University to study history but after helping Olivier Lemasson picking grapes in 2004, he dropped out and enrolled in a oenology course in Bordeaux. ALthough he benefited from the course’s theoretical teachings, he says it actually taught him more about what to avoid in viticulture and winemaking as the Bordeaux mindset is still very much for intervention and the use of technology. He interned at Marcel Lapierre, like Lemasson . He soon took over two hectares of vines to produce hiw own. He has a 70 ares parcel of young gamay, 60 ares of old gamay and 60 ares of old côt. These parcels had been farmed conventionally in the past but had been abandonned for a year before het took them over and farmed organically.
