" Seb’s journey to becoming a winemaker began in the early 2000s after a chance encounter with Jura legend Jean-Marc Brignot. A friendship blossomed between the two and Seb spent much of the next decade juggling his desk job in Paris with travelling to the Jura to observe and assist in the Brignot cellar.  Since 2015 he has been based in the southern Beaujolais town of Saint-Étienne-des-Oullières and is farming 1.5 hectares of Gamay just yards from his cellar door.

From a 70 year old plot of Gamay planted on sandy granitic soil. Whole bunches of grapes were left to macerate for 2 months before being pressed into cuve until the end of June. The arguably more serious of the two 2019 releases — a keen acidity with tart red berries and a lasting herbaceous finish. Incredibly satisfying now but we feel it will reward those patient enough to cellar for a few years." - Beattie & Roberts
