Éric Texier was a nuclear engineer before making wine!
Based in the virtually forgotten area of Brézème, Northern Rhone, Éric makes special wines with a minimalist outlook. He views soil management within the vineyard as one of the most critical aspects as a vigneron. For whites he looks to direct press and use of concrete vats, whereas reds mostly undergo whole bunch fermentation. 100% Syrah from his younger vines, whole-cluster fermented and aged in concrete on fine lees for 18-24 months. Thick lick of tannin, but elegance is not lost. Ripe red fruit, and plenty of milk chocolate. All year drinking.
