Domaine Vincent Siret-Courtaud
Vincent Siret-Courtaud is the son of Jacques Siret (see separate entry). After studying in Toulouse and Dijon and working for four years in Gaillac and Saint-Emilion, this young vigneron elected to develop his own domaine in Quincy rather than to join forces with his father. He started in 2006 when he took over the eight hectare domaine of Denis Jaumier (although he chooses to vinify at the Maison Blanche facility rather than in the cellar (that Jaumier vacated) in the village.

He works six parcels in the appellation, including Le Clos de la Victoire, Le Clos de Bel Air and some 60 year old vines in Les Bruniers.

He produces a perfectly correct generic Quincy and around 800 bottles a year of a rather toasty and atypical barrel fermented wine called Angelus. For the moment, he also sells off a proportion of a younger vine cuvée to négociants in Sancerre and Angers, but hopes to get to a position soon when he can justify bottling his entire production under his own name. He is certainly a grower to watch.
