Simon Batardière

Beaulieu-sur-Layon - Anjou

Settled in Anjou since 2016, Simon had produced his first vintage in 2018 from his  2 hectares of vines, in both Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc, mixed between young and old vines of more than 100 years old. 

A natural vinification process, with only indigenous yeast, without sulfites and chemicals, following this trend of young winemakers in the Loire Valley, conscious about their work and driven by a strong commitment to produce top quality wines. Simon is mastering to ensure acidity and tension, cultivating all the cellaring potential of his wines.

A young talent, discrete yet who deserves all the appreciation and incarnating this new wave.
