Domaine Marie et Vincent Tricot

(Natural)

Vincent graduated Oenology school and started meeting winemakers (like Marcel Lapierre in Beaujolais) who were beginning to attract attention to their non-interventionist style of winemaking.  He was moved by their philosophy and quickly decided that this was the path for him.  In 2002 Vincent, with his wife (Marie), purchased 4.5 ha of organic vines. This region had one of the largest concentrations of pre-phylloxera vines in France and Vincent was eager for such a rare opportunity to work with them.  The Tricot family also decided to de-classify their wines to Vin de France as the general style of the appellation does not reflect the quality of the wine they’re aiming for.
