Thibault Ducroux is the son of a winemaker and his passion comes from there. He learned the basics of the trade alongside his father. However, he does not stop there and quickly wishes to understand more about the soil, wine, nature. Direction the BTS quickly-oeno in St-Jean d´arrières (69).
At the same period he discovered the writings of Jules Chauvet (father of "nature" oenology) which challenged him and ended up convincing him that there were other possible ways.
With his pilgrim's stick in hand, he sets off to meet Jean Claude Lapalu, Michel Guignier, Valentin Morel (Jura) and Isabelle and Bruno Perraud (Vauxrenard). Straight out of his BTS, Thibault Ducroux, leaves to work at Julien Sunier where he learns how to work the soil, the vine all in ORGANIC then to vinify “natural” wines.
At the same time, Thibault Ducroux bought 1.25ha in the Beaujolais appellation which he obviously cultivates in organic (vines in conversion). His first wine "En Roue Libre" was born on the 2019 vintage. From 2020, 5 hectares in rental are worked on the appellations of Morgon and Fleurie.
