Condrieu - Rhône Valley
Since 2018 as a young winemaker, established between Condrieu, Côte-Rôtie and St-Joseph, Thibaud is finding its own path, breaking with the conventions of these famous appellations.
Born and raised in the region, however with no tied from winemaking, he chose after his business studies to follow his passion for wine. He managed to acquire a few parcels of a total of 2 hectares, planted and unplanted, often overlooked by the older generations as not South exposed. Thibaud made a real bet, believing in his project and with the rise of the temperature, this turns out to be beneficial. A great challenge indeed, to work in one of the steepest vineyards in France, following organic farming and natural winemaking, which is still relatively avant-garde for the region.
Thibaud also managed a micro-negoce structure called Slope, carefully sourcing the best organic grapes in the area, from Ardèche, Monts du Lyonnais, Gard and even Piemonte in Italy!
Honest wines, with great depth and character and full of ambition, it is one of the young Southern talents to follow.
