Sarl Jean-Paul Daumen

This is a new portfolio of wines for me, wines that are meant to be accessible and authentic. I want them to be real wines, meant to be enjoyed without pretense. They are modest, and straight from the heart.

Over the years as I watched the latest generation of young, talented vine growers toil their fields, I came up with an idea that would become this current project. I wanted to bottle the fruit of their labor, to capture the spirit of their work, their passion. I knew we shared many things in common, especially the notion of working naturally in the vineyard, so I would simply extend this natural work to my cellar, seeking nothing more than a common expression of our Rhone terroir.
This project is about winemaking it is about buying grapes from parcels whose soil are rich, vibrant, and alive-an integral part of my philosophy. The project is also about working sustainably. I source fruit from organically cultivated vineyards, and use recycled materials for all our packaging to better protect our environment.
Finally, this project is about being true to my approach to making wine, which is working with the best and healthiest fruit in my cellar. This allows me to simply Guide the winemaking process with the least intervention possible. My work will remain nuanced, avoiding extraction and artifice. My desire is to leave my imprint as an artisan, with the challenge of making wine that expresses purity of fruit, uniqueness of vintage and a terroir's personality.

In all sincerity - Jean-Paul Daumen
