PRODUCER PROFILE

The son of Bergerac winemakers, Alexandre Durand established his own domaine ‘Pèira Levada’ in 2018: a patchwork of 12 tiny parcels, totalling at 4 hectares.  Along with his partner Sybil Baldassare, who has her own project focusing on the white varietals of the area: ‘La Grain Sauvage’; the pair relocated to Faugères in 2014 after work in the Dordogne, Italy and Burgundy.  

 

Alex's vinification philosophy is simple. To respect the terroir he does long, delicate macerations of two to three months with no punching down or pumping over. All the work is in fibreglass to let the wines speak for themselves, recognising that the wines of region can often develop a woody character all of their own, and besides: he's tired of cleaning barrels.
