All the grapes come from vines grown without weed killers or synthetic products, which requires a lot of work on my part as well as on the winegrowers who supply me with the grapes! The harvest that arrives in the winery is the result of many efforts. Its natural balance allows me to work in the cellar with great serenity and a lot of confidence. All the wines are vinified and aged without any oenological product (nor sulphite) with very little intervention. We are not looking to make great wines but real, honest wines with the best possible drinkability index. Wine is a drink of conviviality, of friendship, of celebration! I grew up in the south of Burgundy. In love with Auvergne where I was born, I spent all my family holidays behind cows or on tractors. At the end of college only one possible job: PEASANT! But peasant agriculture is difficult. Living in the heart of the Mâconnais, it is quite naturally that I turn to viticulture. At the age of 16, first internship, first vinif: J'adore! Harvesting, fermentation, wine, I have just discovered an exciting environment. After a few internships and jobs in different areas of the Mâconnais and Beaujolais, I continued my training in 2000 in a large Beaune trading house. I spent two years there and then tried to return to a small family estate, in organic farming. I arrive for the 2002 harvest in Saint-Aubin at Dominique DERAIN. I rediscover the peasant spirit of my origins. Passionate, hard-working people who love and know their job. The complicity is immediate, I came to discover organic farming, I am also discovering biodynamics and natural wines....! I am involved in all positions: vineyard, cellar, trade... Accompanying and sharing is enriching but there comes a time when you want to do it for yourself and at your own pace. In 2007 Dominique encouraged me to buy my first pinot noir grapes. This is the start of SEXTANT. Without any equipment, I use Dominique's infrastructure to make my first cuvée. Little by little I equipped myself and in 2010 acquired my first plot. In 2013 I found a winery and cellars in Saint Aubin as well as two new plots in the commune of Pommard. In 2015, a plantation of half a hectare was carried out...
