Grower Profiles



Valérie & Frédéric Dallot
Winemaking forms only part of the Dallot family business. The main enterprise is the raising of Charolais beef cattle, selling their meat on local markets. They operate out of the hamlet of La Bidore, just to the south Châteaumeillant itself, and their ramshackle buildings are just opposite those of Fabien Geoffrenet.

They produce two different cuvées, the ‘Tradition’ comes from three hectares of vines and is seasoned with 10% Pinot Noir, whilst their ‘Gourmandise’ is 100% Gamay. They are also have a little Pinot Gris, which although permitted, is falling out of favour.
