Type: Red Wine
Before a career in viticulture, Anne worked in for a large industrial company in Paris, but after a serious car accident, Anne realize that this life was not for her and left her past life to join her husband Gregory Leclerc (Domaine Chahut et Prodiges) in the Loire. After deciding that she wanted to make wine in a different style than her husband, her dear friend, Christophe Beau, a biodynamic producer in Coteaux du Languedoc offered her a partnership on his small estate, where she rented 2.5 hectares of his land.
In 2011 Autour de l’Anne was created. Anne works with southern grape varieties with a style that tends to be more similar to wines from the Loire Valley than the Languedoc. She avoids heaviness and high alcohol, preferring lighter, terroir-expressive wines.
