ALEXANDRE DUPONT DE LIGONNÈS
Alexandre was born in Paris in the summer of 1982, but has lived since 1988 largely in Germany, studied East Asian Art history in Heidelberg, then came to Dresden and startet as a winemaker at the royal vineyard in Wachwitz and on Steinrücke in Radebeul in Sachsen with a total of just 0.8 Hectares.
The training company was Vincenz Richter in Meißen,but what he learned here is not practiced. Biodynamics is hip, trendy, popular. He relies on special wild yeasts, some of which are built in Clay egg out, lets white wines ferment on the mash. He does not and adds minimal sulfur. The result are unusual, with white wine also cloudy and highly colored, but very tasty, full-bodied wines, who are easily forgiven for their individual will.
