In 2006, Anne and Étienne Sandrin, Agronomist Engineer, she, a legal lawyer, decided to resume the vineyards of the Sandrin family, motivated by the desire to create the project of life for them and their family.
From 2006 to 2013 they always sold the grapes improving, year after year, the cultivation systems of the vines until, in 2013, they started in a very conscious way, the biological conversion and, the following year, the biodynamic one.
They have 10ha of vines divided into 80% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay is in almost ridiculous amounts (0.2 ha), but they only work in quantities to get 10,000 bottles. The rest is still partly sold and partly kept in tanks for the production of the next cuvée.
There are 12 parcels of which the grapes are harvested and which, year after year, will be vinified separately to give rise to new wines.
They do not use wood, they do not use sugar and, in general, nothing that could change the taste of bottled grapes. In this they are very radical.
It's not all roses and flowers because, as Anne says, if you want to make serious biodynamics you're seriously penalized.
2016 and 2017 were very difficult and critical harvests and 2018, unfortunately, looks a lot like us.
