This sparkling Gamay undergoes the Ancestrale method. The grapes are directly pressed and the the wine undergoes alcoholic fermentation at low temperatures with indigenous yeasts until the wine reaches 8% alcohol. The wine is then bottled and fermentation continues until the wine reaches 5 bars of pressure, then the bottles are disgorged and finally, the bottles are topped off and capped.


The polycultural family property dates back to the 17th century, and was passed from generation to generation. When Stéphane Sérol took over in 1996, the domaine totalled 12 hectares. Very attached to the Côte Roannaise, he cleared new plots on the finest hillsides to replant. With his wife, Carine, they converted the domaine to organic and then to biodynamic viticulture, with the aim of preserving and valorizing the terroirs. The domaine’s core team comprises 8 people. During the vegetative growing period, up to 15 people work in the vineyards. Harvest is carried out by hand.

Because nearly everything is pre-determined in the vineyard, the family has chosen organic and biodynamic farming. The goal is to strengthen the vines and preserve the soils by respecting the natural cycles.This precise farming incorporates only natural products, implemented at the right time. Observation and understanding of terroir is essential.
