A word about the domain
Matthias and Émile are the 4th generation of the Roblin Family to manage the property. Matthias took it over in 2000, joined by his brother Émile in 2006. They have developed the domain and converted it to "Agriculture Raisonnée". They are doing an amazing job making outstanding wines from the great "Terres Blanches" soils, made of Kimmeridgian Marls, very well known in the region. They have also upgraded their cellar drastically to control the fermentation better and improve the quality of all their wines.
