About Jean-Marie Brousset

Formerly a partner in Anjou organic estate Les Roches Sèches, Tours native Jean-Marie Brousset went solo in 2017, producing wine as La Vinoterie. Despite health challenges, including a hip replacement last summer, Brousset has succeeded in establishing a promising new winemaking identity, typified by a willingness to rethink the unspoken conventions of natural Anjou.

Jean-Marie has a good mix of pragmatism and experimentation. A hip prosthesis has forced him to mechanize some of the work of the winemaker, especially the work in the vineyard. For example, he has built steel containers that fit on the mechanical arm of his tractor to make it easier to transport grapes from harvest to cellar. In his cellar, he is much more experimental than in the days of Les Roches Sèches, when they took a more classical approach to winemaking. He offers unusual blends for the region, such as his “White Rabbit”, a blend of Chenin and Chardonnay, which gives this wine a wonderful balance. So does his “Red Red Wine” made from Grolleau, Cabernet Franc, and Chenin Blanc, a smooth and fruity red wine.
