Lise & Bertrand Jousset
11ha. under vine
Bertrand, a former soldier, and Lise, a trained sommelier, moved to Montlouis-sur-Loire in 2003. Their 11-hectare estate has vineyards ranging between 30 and 130 years of age. So delicate and fragile are their vineyards and terroir, and so committed are they to natural farming and winemaking, that like many in the Loire, the Joussets have seen three out of the last five vintages fail. As a result, they have resourcefully decided to make a few wines from grapes bought from other areas and regions, even as far away as Gaillac in the South West. We look forward to those wines’ arrival in the UK.
