Our opinion on this winery

Eric Dubois, well known as winemaker of the famous Clos Cristal, has just taken vines with his wife in Anjou near Savennières. His wines express perfectly the subtle balance between terroir, tradition, nature and work of the man. Here are the first vintages of his new life ! Eric Dubois has a great experience in organic agriculture, Biodynamics and animal traction. His wines (those elaborated with Clos Cristal) perfectly expressed this subtle balance between terroir, tradition, nature and work of the man. Wines with a rich and intense imprint, with a strong identity.

The domain is globally on schists (in the western continuity of Savennières) and clayey. Eric Dubois describes this area as "complex culture, small yields, but big identity". Identity is a word that often comes up when we talk about the Clos Cristal. Identity is also what we have always appreciated in the work of Eric, a touching, sensitive, humble and unsure character.
