After a fruitful career in forest management in Canada, Frantz decided to try his hand at winemaking. Setting up shop in Montlouis-sur-Loire, Touraine in the 90’s. Biodynamic and organic practices have been present from the beginning with vines grown on clay, limestone and silex. Frantz produces quite an array of cuvées, some still and some petillant naturals, all with a common thread of striving for clarity, weightlessness and dryness. In the cellar he deploys the use of stainless steel, old wood barrels and fiberglass for vinification and ageing.

Whistle-clean grolleau gamay bubbly; a touch of residual sugar gives it a lip-smacking finish.
