I chose to put my father's drawings on the most representative vintage of our estate, the Saumur Champigny Vieilles Vignes, because my father, an artist at heart and in his life, has always considered wine as an art form.
From the vine stock that is planted to the wine that is produced, all the stages of a wine are the work of man and his ability to shape nature so that it gives him the best and thus transform the richness that the soil and the vine offer us.
With his hand, his mind and his soul, man manages to work a simple juice in nectar for the pleasure of all and sharing and it is therefore an art: "Every necessity in life must be transformed into art so that necessity becomes pleasure" - Gaël de Tigny.
So I found it quite appropriate to put his drawings on our bottles.
We will place them on a limited number of bottles of "Vieilles Vignes" and on each vintage there will be a different design, which will make the vintage unique and recognizable.
I hope you will become enthusiastic collectors and lovers of these bottles, as I am of my father's drawings and our wines.
