    The rendering of Thierry Germain by renowned French wine artist Michel Tolmer that appears on most of Thierry’s labels is the perfect image to capture the essence of his accomplishment. A tall and imposing presence, physically and intellectually, Thierry casts a long shadow. His vines, old, wise, and vibrantly healthy thanks to biodynamic viticulture, cast an imposing shadow themselves.

    100% de-stemmed and fermented in cement tank for 18 to 22 days. Light pumpovers during fermentation, meant to infuse the grapes not extract them. Aged on fine lees in 600L or 1200L foudre for 12 months.

    In The Vineyard
    4ha vineyard with 45YO vines grown on Clay, Tuffeau Limestone soils.
    A luminous wine from the 2020 vintage. The nose is still discreet. On the palate, "Les Terres Chaudes" cuvée reveals all its intensity with its floral notes, its very clear fruitiness, its well-asserted spicy notes.
