Tracy-sur-Loire

The winemaker Alexandre Bain has been established since 2007 in Tracy-sur-Loire. The estate is made up of 11 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc, the Pouilly-rumé grape variety. His  parents were not involved in the world of wine but his grandfather had vineyards in the area where he started. He became aware of organic farming from Mathieu Coste and started his activity on his farm with two different soils:

1/ Portland limestone (135 million years) on 8 Ha, stony soils with good drainage (one third of each sand, alluvium and clay) which produces the Pierre Précieuse and Terre d’Obus cuvée.

2/ Kimmeridgian limestone (140 million years), where the land is fatter, difficult to work but still structures the wines including the cuvée Mademoiselle M. This geological area was the old bed of the Loire and there are some large stones. In his vines with tight ranks, Alexandre works by hand, plowing the vineyard with his draft horse Phenomenon. On the vinification side, nothing technological and oenological, only indigenous yeasts, no addition of enzymes. The wines are not fined. The first cuvées receive a tiny amount of sulfur at bottling. Alexandre’s wines are highly expressive and free. Living wines.
