Les Athlètes du Vin is a négociant project based in the heart of the Loire Valley. The group is made up of some of the region’s most dynamic and respected winemakers, including Thierry Germain, Pierre Breton, and Mathieu Vallée of Château Yvonne. All wines at Les Athlètes du Vin are vinifed by various members of the Vini Be Good network and are produced using their own grapes or grapes purchased from reliable friends and neighbors.
Winemaking is done with minimal intervention, native yeasts, and minimal sulfur, with light or no filtration implemented (depending on the cuvée). Les Athlètes du Vin strive to make delicious and authentic, that are both responsibly produced and affordable. The labels are created by French artist, illustrator, and cartoonist Michel Tolmer, who has been the unofficial lead artist of the French natural wine movement since the 1990s.

A Santenots as pretty as it is sweet. This is arguably the best premier cru vineyard in Volnay, often referred to as a Tête de Cuvée. Hints of leather, black plum, cherry and peony, similar aromas to the Pommard, but without the tannin. Secondary notes of mocha coffee and cooked tarragon followed by the Santenots raspberry and strawberry. The mouth is round and supple with silky tannins and a long finish. Drink now through 2035. This is truly an outstanding wine for a special evening.

Hailing from 30-year-old vines, this Sangiovese is classic, earthy, and wonderfully smoky. For us, this is the ultimate “red sauce” wine – pizza, pasta, chicken parm, you name it.
