The captivating character of his wines convey the depth and dedication of his craftsmanship. Gilles devotion is further underscored by his perseverance through near-liquidation in 2011 and a disastrous 2016 harvest. As a new domaine, his winemaking is not constrained by past practices. But with no historical market, he must be impeccable in his craft and unrelenting in his standards. Gilles is a protg of Philippe Charlopin (himself, a protg of the legendary Henri Jayer).
Wine is aged on the fine lees for 12 months in 228 liter barrels of seasoned French oak and further aged 6 months in bottle before release.
