Flavien Nowack is a curious young man on a personal mission to elaborate the individual parcels of his native Vandières, in the Vallée de la Marne and find the themes which unite soil with varietal. Each parcel, whether single varietal or co-planted, is a unique expression of the valley’s mix of sanded clay, marl and limestone and it is the winemaker’s passion to explore this rich geological diversity and in so doing, to intervene as little as possible in order to allow for the most transparent expression of terroir and cépage.
