"The incredible and talented Patrick Desplats created the Griottes estate in Saint Lambert du Lattay (Maine-et-Loire) with Sébastien Dervieux in 2001, with a few hectares of vines. Today they each have their own domain. Les Griottes has nearly 9ha. The farm is populated with chickens, geese and ducks. The vineyard is cultivated organically, plowed with animal traction and treated with products made from Bordeaux mixture; the wine is pressed in vertical presses which respect the integrity of the grape and the vinification is completely natural without the addition of SO2, the aging on lees can take several years. The various plots, with soils dominated by schists, are planted with chenin, cabernet sauvignon, pineau d 'aunis, gamay, grolleau, chardonnay and sauvignon which fortunately sit alongside fruit trees and beehives." - translated from La Cave des Papilles
