David Large describes his development as a winemaker as a process of “unlearning” – breaking down the techniques collected through his studies and various periods working under highly-esteemed producers to establish his own unique style. He is also a rap and poetry aficionado, putting his talents to good use when it comes to penning the lyrics that adorn his back labels. David's vineyards are located in pockets around Montmelas, a beautiful and mountainous area of the Southwest Beaujolais. The soil types of his wines are predominantly granite, clay and the “Pierres Dorées”, a local and unique limestone formation pigmented with iron oxide. His wines also benefit from a volcanic rock base uniquely suited to Gamay vines. His fixation on terroir specificity means that he vinifies and bottles almost every plot separately, resulting in as many as 18 different cuvées each year from only 5ha of vineyards.
