Winegrower & Oenologist
After studying chemistry in Paris XI and graduating in oenology in Reims in 1993, Nathalie Falmet took over the family estate and became a winegrower in the ‘Côte des Bar’. She works in parallel in both lines of work.
The vineyard of 3, 40 hectares, is managed with sustainable cultivation on higher Kimmeridgian clay-limestone soil where grape varieties, soils and specific plots of land express themselves naturally. Together with different methods of winemaking, they produce a variety of vintages.
«My philosophy of growing the vines, vinification and winemaking is of course the healthiest, as far as the respect of nature is concerned, but it also leads to a purity and unmatched quality of wine.»
I work in sustainable farming, with a small production. The goal is to place my wines in networks where the clientele is oenophile and confidential, to give the wine its dimension of singularity and exception.
«In my opinion, the typicality of a wine is nothing more than the combination of a soil type, a microclimate, a plant and man.»
It is possible to love a wine simply by appreciating the person who made it. Behind every label there is a winemaker and it is essential not to disassociate the two. Of course, the soils have a considerable influence and in each territory, in each municipality, the winemaker makes the difference between their wine and their neighbor’s.
