Nicolas and Philippe purchased the Hauts-Baigneux estate In Azay-le-Rideau, just east of the much more famous Chinon, in 2012. The region is most famous for Gamay- and Grolleau-based rosé wines and excellent Chenin Blanc from its flint-rich terroir. To supplement the wines made from fruit from the estate itself, Nicolas and Philippe are also negociants, making wines under a second label – Les Tètes.
