Maxime Graillot was born into a winemaking family and trained under his father until 2004 when he decided to divide his time between his father�s domaine and establishing his own with long term friend and fellow winemaker, Thomas Schmittel. They bought parcels in the village of Beaumont-Monteux, (just south of Maxime�s father�s plots in La Chene Vert) converted them from conventional to organic sites and banned the use of herbicides. Much of the fruit is de-stemmed and fermented in a combination of concrete and old Burdundian oak to produce wines with exuberant, pure fruit and ultimate freshness.
