It takes characters like Damien Lorteau and his parents to be brave, step outside the mainstrean and breathe life (literally soil life) into their pocket of the right bank near Blaye. Damien returned to his parents vineyards after adventuring around the world, making wine working with progressive growers in Spain, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, the US as well as closer to home in Burgundy and the Rhône.

Les Helices is taken from Damien's mother's parcels of old vines over limestone that slope down to the Gironde estuary. Aged for two years in concrete tanks and bottled in the waning moon of spring 2021. Lovely and soft, deep fruit, cassis with a lift of limey acidity.
