Pierre Papin bought Château Pierre-Bise, at the age of 50, in 1959.
In 1974, his son Claude took on the original nine hectares in Pays de la Loire and gradually expanded the estate, particularly during the 1980s, with the purchase of vines from his winegrower father-in-law in Rochefort, Chaume and Quarts-de-Chaume.
The knowledge of living things
One of the possible etymologies of the word “agriculture” is “carefully maintaining the fields” and it is this vision that we have chosen. It is thus natural for us to attach the word “organic” to this, since it means “knowledge of living things”.
The wine is always exceptional! A tasting followed by a visit of the terroir allows a better understanding of the vinification and the elaboration of the wine. It is always interesting to listen to René’s and Claude’s expertise. I highly recommend to taste their organic wines, a really pleasant experience.SébastienJuin 2021
A very warm welcome and sumptuous wines that express all the nuances of an exceptional terroir. Something I recommend to discover !DominiqueJuillet 2021
A great scholar of the wine world. A unique address in Europe. A balanced wine, with fresh, expressive and very fruity aromas (mango, passion fruit, pear), sharp on the palate with an elegant and greedy finish.CarbelDécembre 2020
