Le Nez de Goth

What is La Nez de Goth? What I tried to implement is like having a garden with my friends. In fact, the idea of undertaking this human and wine adventure was born from my various meetings scattered throughout France. Interviews and debates, exchanges and confrontations that aroused my curiosity, during the colorful excursions during my years of learning and improvement:
I wanted to continue nourishing myself with all these influences so that the knowledge thus compiled is rich, in a varied mosaic, of winemaking techniques.
In its form, these purchases of grapes from illustrious winegrowers allow me to enjoy substantial moments in their company, apt to stimulate my own sensitivity. Basically, they are a constant questioning of my oenological work. Beyond the commercial dimension, it is about anchoring my activity in an approach that is not simply economic, but guided by uncompromising aesthetic principles. My way of proceeding is based on an observation that is both simple and lapidary: if agriculture is the source of our civilization and the fruit of its development, the turn against nature and even destructive that it has carried out in the last fifty years is, in As for him, a factor of social and health disruption in a decadent capitalist world.
By working in a deliberately ancestral way, I propose not only to better highlight the potentially considerable effect of soils, subsoils and microclimates on the taste of wines but also to contribute, however modestly, to recomposing a now tattered human temporality.
My grapes come from so-called organic or biodynamic agriculture; but, beyond the certifications that are often too lax, the approach of my viticulturists is lively, a particularly revitalizing concern for the soil and the plant.
So I just have to take over this viticulture that is both belligerent and inspired, working in harmony with this rich material whose potential I need to understand in order to better express it.
The utensils of the old world and of yesteryear (indigenous yeasts, vertical manual press, without inputs or oenological products and very, very little electricity, so a lot of manipulation...) have proven to be precious allies in my project of making wines, turning my back on to any manufacturing idea.
Fruit of as many efforts as risks are incurred in this border with living processes that go beyond us, these products, I hope, I will be able to find in each one of you a resonance in accordance with my involvement.
