The winemaker

« I do not cultivate the vine to produce a fruit but to elaborate a wine. In the mindset of the one who produces his own wine without profitability constraints at all costs. I have faith in these vines which require attention, which one pampers and whose outputs one limits deliberately ».

These few phrases summize Thierry Constantin’ s philosophy.

If the techniques of wine making do not cease evolving, the sine qua nun condition for the creation of a high-class wine remains invariably and immutably related to the quality of the raw material: the grape. Type of vine adequacy – soil, output control, respect of nature, aiming at optimal maturities, Thierry Constantin devotes care and attention to each one of these stages.

Self confessed perfectionist, he never shies away from the hardest tasks, even if the required rigorism would discourage most! He is of these esthetes whose conviction it is that with each stage of the process, from the cultivation to the wine making and maturing giving life to a great bottle, it is above all the wine which commands. Reason guides the wine grower or oenologist’s choice, passion feeds him with energy…which this chap doesn’t lack !

Of this inclination to meticulous work, year after year true wines, chiselled, authentic wines are born. No make up or over-extraction ! The Thierry Constantin signed wines are representative of their vine sort, their soil typicity; they embody elegance, freshness, digestibility and are the deserving ambassadors of their origins. Cheers!
