Martin Texier -- son of Natural Wine Rhône legend, Eric Texier – has crafted this stunner of a single varietal wine. Brézeme is a unique site within the Northern Rhône and is on a single slope of broken down limestone, planted with a 22-hectare parcel of vines farmed by Martin and Eric. Martin Texier led multiple lives prior to following in his father’s footsteps and returning to the vines – he was an economics major, then ventured into music and was an accomplished DJ. He now has five hectares in and around St.Julien-enSt.-Alban planted with Muscat, Chasselas Rose, Grenache, Syrah, and Cinsault.The property has many different soil types here: clay, limestone, gneiss, schist and granite.
