Domaine Mosse

DOMAINE AGNÈS & RENÉ MOSSE, Anjou – Biodynamic

Agnès and René Mosse, along with their sons Joseph and Sylvestre, live and work in the Anjou village of St-Lambert-du-Lattay. Before becoming vignerons, they owned a wine-bar and bottle shop in Tours. The couple studied viticulture and oenology at the agricultural lycée in Amboise where two of their teachers were Thierry Puzelat (Clos du Tue-Boeuf) and Christian Chaussard (Domaine le Briseau). After graduating, they spent two years working in Côte-de-Beaune before buying their estate in St-Lambert in 1999. They currently work 15 hectares of vines, mainly Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc, and the rest planted with Gamay, Chardonnay, Grolleau Gris and Noir. They adopted organic viticulture techniques from the start. With all the efforts put into vineyard work, it is equally important to them to vinify in a natural fashion, and they are particularly attentive to minimizing manipulations and the use of sulphur. All the wines are barrel-fermented and aged. René is technically retired, Agnès still works. Syvlestre and Joseph both came on board in 2014. Otherwise, the brothers have been having fun creating new cuvées from estate fruit as well as with purchased grapes through the family’s négociant business.
