VINCENT & MARIE TRICOT
Vincent and Marie had worked in Beaujolais in the 1990s and were heavily influenced by the work of Jules Chauvet, Marcel Lapierre et al. In a quest for the terroir and vines with which to work in this same spirit, they moved to the Auvergne in 2002. They started off with 4.5 hectares and over the years have planted another 5 or so. They have plots of Gamay d’Auvergne, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Muscat from which they make some truly incredible wines.
