Éric Texier was a nuclear engineer before making wine!
Based in the virtually forgotten area of Brézème, Northern Rhone, Éric makes special wines with a minimalist outlook. He views soil management within the vineyard as one of the most critical aspects as a vigneron. For whites he looks to direct press and use of concrete vats, whereas reds mostly undergo whole bunch fermentation. Adele, is predominantly Clairette with a touch of Marsanne. Organically farmed on granite soils, it is whole-cluster pressed and aged in cement tanks on fine lees. Like all Texier’s wines, it is vibrant and full of energy. Apple and bergamot come to the forefront, with a clarity and freshness on the finish. Great drinking.
