The vine derives a wealth of nourishment from both the atmosphere and the soil. The energy drawn from the atmosphere is primarily used to create the vine's physical matter, while the vine's roots seek energy from the soil, transmitting information to the grapes and to the resulting wine.
The vines require vigilant attention. Depending on the grape variety and the location of the vineyard, winegrowers must comprehend their terroirs and adapt their intervention accordingly. Encouraging the vine to produce more than the soil is capable of supporting not only dilutes the information that the soil transmits to the vine, but also weakens the plant and reduces its potential lifespan.
As a consequence, we are working to adapt our actions according to each parcel, even to each individual vine, producing a wine rich in its expression of identity and experience.
Vinification takes place in stainless-steel tanks with indigenous yeasts, and the wines are not filtered

Fiacre Taillet, winegrower in Merfy in 1485, was the first of a long line of family winegrowers in Merfy.
Another Fiacre Taillet, born in 1700, was an enlightened winemaker who wrote extensive memoirs about his life and his work, as well as the economic, political and cultural environment of the region in the early 18th century. Following this, first Laurent, then Antoine Taillet continued to write logs, passing the family tradition on from father to son, one generation to the next. Today, Alexandre Chartogne-Taillet maintains written logs of his own, as his parents Philippe and Elisabeth did before him.
Since 2006, Alexandre has been dedicated to the family's work, seeking to share with you the wines of the village of Merfy.
