LE PETIT FIGUIER

The story of my estate goes back to the 18th century. It was then owned by the family Denis de Lansac, who were rich merchants of the region. During the 19th and 20th centuries, it was bought by farmers of the family, to be passed on through generations until I bought it myself in 2009. I have been a winegrower since 1969, first in Charente-Maritime area, then I turned to technical business jobs in winegrowing. In 2009, I felt the need to go back to my winegrowing roots in Côtes de Bourg appellation.
The wine Le Petit Figuier is a blend of my old vines that captures the essence of my terroir ; my secret and flowery garden, my harvesting memories during which we used to take breaks feeding from our old fig tree and its generous fruit.
