Regular price £32.10
3 hectare estate – minimal intervention
Since 2004, Christophe Curtat has steadily grown his tiny domaine near Arras to comprise 3 hectares of vineyards in the enviable location of St Joseph. Having initially learned his trade under the tutelage of Yves Cuilleron and Francois Villard – both acknowledged as winemaking heroes in this part of the world – Christophe now fashions a range of wines from his vines with range from 12 to 50 years of age.
Christophe employs modern winemaking techniques and incredible attention to detail in order to capture the freshness of the fruit. Vinification is conducted using a minimal intervention approach using wild yeasts and SO2 levels are kept to a minimum.
