Francis ran the family estate with his siblings for a decade before they became estranged over the farming practices he had introduced and decided to split the family holdings. Francis and his daughter Delphine, with their three hectares, finally farm the way they want, the biodynamic certification having been achieved in 2007. Their vines average around 35 years and the three grape varieties are almost equally represented in the vineyard.
