The Story

Lionel Gosseaume settled down late in life, at 37 years old, after having been a "truant vine" for many years. He resisted, fought not to follow in the family footsteps, but without success! The virus got the better of him and in 2007 he dived in and took over a small vineyard on a vast plateau between the Loire River and its tributary the Cher, a succession of wide undulations, limited by small gently sloping hillsides.
