Overview

After years of visiting and tasting with Thierry, we’ve come to love his Pinot Noirs starting with the rosé and running the table all the way to La Grande Pièce. Pinot Noir in the Fief Vendéens is truly unique for two reasons: the maritime climate and the schist soils. You can find one or another of these variables in places like the Ahr, Central Otago or the true Sonoma Coast but never together.
