LA CARRIÈRE DE MARCEL

In my family, winemaking is a passion since the 1920s! My great grandfather, Marcel Bodet, introduced the wine activity at the time. Marcel’s life was rich! Former doctor, he participated to the creation of a local common wine cellar in 1929, in order to answer the winegrowers’ needs to face the phylloxera crisis. Aside from his sharecropping wine activity, he became mayor of Saint-Laurent-d’Arce village during 22 years. Since my arrival in 2014 in the family winery, I represent the fourth generation of winegrowers within the Côtes de Bourg appellation terroir. That specific and ideal location offers its richness to our wines.
The cuvée “La Carrière de Marcel” is made out of a special selection of vine parcels ! They were planted above ancient limestone quarries that used to be dug for a long time starting in the 18th century and were used for building purposes. That wine is a tribute to our local land and to my great grandfather, committed man and winegrower. (“Carrière” meaning both quarry and career)
