Background

"Claude Courtois has created a small farm which exemplifies what biodynamic is in terms of biodiversity and self-sufficiency, although he does not consider himself to be a biodynamic grower. He farms a balanced & completely chemical free 13-hectares of vines in the heart of the VDP Sologne. Courtois also grows organic wheat, which he feeds to his cows. “Nothing comes into my vineyard,” he says, meaning no chemicals ever. He has created a well-balanced, bio-diversity with trees, fruit trees, vines, woods, and fields. No pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, chemical fertilizers, or synthetic chemicals of any kind are allowed on the vines or in the soil of the vineyards. He has his own methods for promoting the diverse life of the soil.

Claude, who is growing older, has started to pass off the winemaking to his son Etienne, who is already showing immense promise. Currently Claude only makes the Racines cuvées and Etienne is in charge of the others. Etienne is another example of the new generation taking over, bringing a new level of precision to winemaking, much as Baptiste cousin has with some of his father Olivier’s wines."-Jenny & Francois Selections
