Installed since 1998, Matthieu Barret, 45 years old young winemaker, exploits 20 ha planted on terraces exposed towards the Levant in “Cornas” appellation. On this soil, made up of very degraded old granite named “gore”, Matthieu Barret has the ambition to create 100% grape‘s terroir wines.
“High wines are made of “simples” grapes. Any winemaking, even perfect, cannot create what we can get on a natural way. Grape holds this “magic”. So, we cannot destroy it. Our winemaking is “flexible” to let wine to do as it likes in order to express its soil and its vintage”.
