Really lovely post Alice.

I'm a big fan of C.Ducroux and Eric Textier. And funny, was introduced to both by the team at Chambers Street Wines.

I appreciate this in person view of his personality and vineyard. I only know him from a distance, through the wine itself.

My only quibble is the choice of 'farmer's'. It sounds somewhat limited while to me his wine tastes so genuine and fresh and universal that I feel that he made it to share with me;)


Hello Arnold, and for me too! I just love that he doesn't want to make an important wine, but that a simple and enjoyable wine is his motivation.


Interesting and personal and pleasurable are way more important to me than an ideal of 'perfection'.

I feel that way about 'natural' wines in general and that's why I'm drawn to them.


Great Post and VERY interesting video. Thanks!

I'm hunting the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want them natural and most of all, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue. With this messiah thing going on, I'm trying to swell the ranks of those who crave the differences in each vintage, celebrate nuance and desire wines that make them think, laugh, and feel. Welcome.
