During his career, he met Jean-Claude Bougrier, a winemaker from Saint Georges sur Cher. They became good friends, and could spend hours talking about Loire Valley wines style, terroir and how to improve the vinification process...
When he died in 1985, Jean-Claude Bougrier decided to create a wine brand to pay tribute to his good friend.
