The Estate

My name is Maxime Oudiette, in 2012 I joined my parents, Sylvie and Pascal Oudiette on the family estate located in Beaunay in the Coteaux du Petit Morin.

On the estate we cultivate, harvest and press since the 1980s all the grapes from our 3 hectares of vines.

In 2015 I started my first vinifications on the estate.

After several experiences at Champagne Thuillier and Champagne Jacques Selosse to help me find my own way, I had found the basis of my winemaking philosophy:

Make the earth, the vine and the wine a single symbiotic ecosystem.
Connecting my wines to their parcel of origin.
A balanced inspiration of organic, biodynamic, vitiforestry, and permaculture techniques.
Each gesture from the vine to the wines must be adaptive to the climatic and biological environment in order to interact efficiently plot by plot.
At the time of pressing, all our grapes are pressed and vinified in a single parcel. This is the essential rule to understand the influence of soils on our wines.

The first bottles under the name Oudiette were sold in November 2020.

History

Le Domaine a été fondé dans les années 1920 par Léon et Gabrielle Aubert qui, après-guerre, ont entamés en parallèle de l’agriculture le travail de la vigne sur la commune de Beaunay.

Leur fille, Arlette et son mari André Oudiette, ont développés le domaine viticole durant toute leur vie pour ensuite le transmettre à leurs deux enfants.

Pascal Oudiette l’aîné, accompagné de Sylvie sa femme, ont également consacré leur vie à cultiver la vigne et à faire évoluer le domaine en installant le premier pressoir au début des années 1980.
