The Real French Organic Wine
The authentic taste of Organic Wine
From the vineyard to the cellar, these wines are 100% made with natural-based products.
Respectful of the Earth, and your Body, you will experience the wine to its purest form.
There are thousands and thousands of winemakers around the world...but none other like Stéphane Bak.
Located in the Côte Châlonnaise, Stéphane started to create his own wine in 2007, as a hobby aside from his main job. Working in the vineyard for a local winemaker, he learnt everything about the grapes and the vines. But his dream was to create his own wine.
He bought a tiny abandoned parcel of 500 square meters and started to experience by himself. Starting from very small, he continued to work hard and learn by himself. A hard work that paid a few years after starting his ‘hobby’ when he has been nominated to the Concours des Vins (Wine Contest). From 1,5 hectares to 3 hectares in 2017, Stéphane finally decides to resign from his main job to start 100% working for himself.
Un vigneron autodidacte
‘I worked 15 years in a Domaine. I was used to work in the vineyard, but I barely had any experience in the cellar, as it wasn’t part of my job. So I bought a little parcel of only 500 square meters that was abandoned, and I started to experience by myself as a hobby’.
What a bold move to start a Domaine from scratch! Usually, vineyards are transmitted from generations to generations. Because the wine world is so small and difficult to enter, and also because vineyards prices are incredibly expensive, there are only a very few brave people who start like Stéphane did.
His motivation: create a wine that respects the nature and the body. Stéphane chose to work only with natural products since the very beginning. Closely collaborating with the nature, even in its wildest aspects (bad weather, vines diseases,...), he produces a pure wine that reveals the true aromas of his beloved grapes.
Nature is its only ally in his everyday job, as he is working alone…
Courageux et Naturel
‘I do everything by myself, from the vineyard to the cellar. I like to do all the different tasks, and doing so I can control each and every aspects of the processes. I sometimes receive some help from my family, especially during the harvest. If I hire someone in the future, it will only be to pass on the knowledge I have accumulated through the years. I think it's essential to help young passionate people and make them understand the importance of respecting the nature, so as to protect people's health.’
'My goal is to minimize the use of inputs and produce the most natural wine possible. My wines are easy to drink, soft and silky. I wait until the very last moment to harvest, so the wines are not acid nor bitter. Mature grapes give this round and warm taste that makes you feel comfortable.
Since these are organic wines, there is a very small amount of sulfits. This product is usually used under its chemical form and in large doses in order to balance the wine's taste (because of poor-quality grapes). In my wines, there will always be a minimum of the natural version of this ingredient. Which is a good news for the Nature, but also for people who will drink them: they won't have any headaches! So please, drink a lot! [laughs]’
Light and silky tannins give this Pinot Noir an interesting length: fruity (blueberry, cherry) at the beginning, and mellow wood in the end. The very light acidity note at the end refresh the mouth. Tannins are distinct but not dominant, so your tongue won't get dry after tasting.
Vin Rouge: Un Pinot Noir Délicat
Open this wine one or two hours before drinking, so the warm cherry aroma will embrace your palate. It's a friendly wine that makes you feel comfortable. You can drink this wine with red meat, or noodles dishes. But my favorite pairing is with dark chocolate cakes... delicious!
A very sunny wine that reminds the summer fresh white fruits such as peach, melon or pear. Very easy to drink, there is no feeling of alcohol at all. The light mineral touch at the end is very typical of Bourgogne wines. After all, Aligoté is a traditional grape variety of this region. This wine reminds of the beautiful green vineyards in a summer afternoon.
Vin Blanc: Un Aligoté Ensoleillé
This wine is perfect when you want to light up the mood and spend a nice moment. Serve this wine cool (around 12 degrees) to enjoy the freshness of the white fruits. It's perfect with fish -especially sashimi and shellfishes, eggs, light cheese and vegetables.
Even if I produce this sparkling wine according to the Champagne tradition, I take care of keeping the sugar level very low. It's light and the bubbles don't anarchically explode in your mouth. I recommend to drink it fresh with a yummy pastry or a creamy fish. It's also perfect with all kind of appetizers.
Crémant: Des Bulles Raffinées
Compared with many champagnes, this light crémant is not sugary at all. This Blanc de Noir (sparkling wine made with Pinot Noir) is extremely easy to drink, with elegant bubbles that will caress your palate. Its pineapple taste gives an original twist that will surprise your senses.
