About

At a time when modern oenology triumphs, we often tend to forget that a great wine is conceived primarily in the vineyard: plowing the soil, controlled yields, disbudding, duplication, manual harvesting and respect for the biotope.

Avant-gardist, the Domaine de l’Ecu is certified in organic agriculture since 1975 and biodynamic since 1998 (Demeter) on all of its 24 hectares. They are also certified Biodyvin since 2014.

The domain has renounced on all technological artifice in the cellar to break with the movement of standardization of wines and preserve the link uniting each of the cuvées to a terroir and a vintage.

As such, they are proud to be part of the groups of winemakers in Biodynamie "Renaissance Appellations" and "Biodyvin" who both advocate respect for the terroir and this search for pure wine, without makeup or deception ...The vintages of the terroir are today present on the most beautiful tables of the world.
