Bringing you authentic yet affordable Burgundies thanks to Angel funding
- Discovered by our trusty Wine Nut on his travels through France
- With limited production, normally everything Matthieu makes sells out instantly
- But when he heard how big a difference Angel funding can make, he couldn’t wait to get Naked, and offered us a parcel of his premium Burgundy - which we gleefully snapped up!
Matthieu Gille's Story
In a former life I was an Aerospace engineer, National Banque Lobbyist, and a consulting winemaker.
I've always made wine though, I came to take over the estate in 1996 when my father wanted to retire. In my life, continuing my family tradition has been the best gift ever.
My belief is - It is in the old pots that you make the best jam. This is the only product resisting to the actual entropy. A good wine takes the right terroir, and 3 years. My patience is rewarded by the emotion you communicate while enjoying my wines.
We work with Pinot and Chardonnay that have been specifically grafted for Burgundy. Farmed the right way, they are always perfect. We look for our wines to reflect the profile of their terroir.
Every day we learn something new here. But starting consulting in Oregon, I realized, I new nothing and that Burgundy terroir does the work for us! ;)
When we talked about Angel funding, it would not be for more comfort, nor for modern tools. It will be to share with you the privilège of acquiring beautiful vineyards, and make wine from them for you."
