Les Terres Dubien

COUNTRY :
France

REGION :
Bordeaux

PRODUCTION :

Les Terres Dubien is a small estate started in 2020 with 3 ha of vineyards in the municipalities of Saint-Yzans-du-Médoc, Couquèques and Lesparre in the Médocaine peninsula north of Bordeaux. Benoit, the winemaker of Terres Dubien, naturally embarked on organic and biodynamic cultivation, searching for expression of the terroir of each plot.

The alternation of tillage and the different plant cover is set up according to each plot. The majority of the plants used for infusions, to be sprayed in the vineyards in addition to copper and sulfur, are picked directly on the estate or close-by in Médoc. The harvest is manual with the help of lots of friends, to give a little extra soul to the wines.

Vinifications are made naturally with native yeasts and gentle extractions, and if possible without the use of a wine pump. The goal is a search for fruit and finesse. Aging is 8 to 18 months in vats and old barrels depending on the cuvées that are parcelled. Bottings are made without fining or filtration with a total SO2 between 0 and 30 mg/L depending on the vintage. The estate also includes collaborative projects with winemakers outside the Médoc.
