Domaine de L'Ecu

Domaine de L'Ecu

Ahead of its time, Le Domaine de l’Ecu has been certified as an organic agriculturist since 1975 and certified in Biodynamics since 1988 (Demeter) for the whole of its 23 hectares. 

During mandatory military service in the late 60s and early 70s, Guy Bossard lived in a farming community and would spend hours reading about agriculture. Upon completion of his service, he returned to his family farm and converted its vineyards to organics, despite much scrutiny in 1975. Years later he became aware of and fascinated with biodynamics. He began the conversion to biodynamics in 1992 and in 1996 earned his Demeter certification. In addition, they have renounced all artificial technology in our cellars to break with the movement of standardisation of wines and preserve the bond linking each one of our vats to a particular soil and a partucular vintage.

The domaine is located in the hamlet of Le Landreau in Sevre et Maine, Muscadet's best region of production. Bossard was and remains obbsessed with Muscadet - in some years offering multiple bottlings based on soil types.

In 2009, Guy began working with Fred Niger Van Herck. In college Fred studied law, intending to become an attorney. In 2000, he created a web hosting company but, passionate about wine for 20 years, he decided to sell his company and went back to school to become a winegrower.
