Since the mid 1990s, the domaine has followed the principles of lutte raisonnée (reasoned fight) in its farming practices, plowing rather than spraying herbicides, forgoing the use of chemical fertilizers, and being conscientious in its applications of fungicides. Beginning in 2010, Jérôme’s dynamic daughter Clémence joined the domaine in a full-time capacity to take the reins. With her came her husband Baptiste (both are pictured above), who like Clém has embraced the cellar and vineyard work with a keen intelligence and a whole-hearted commitment. Their involvement has been a dynamic change for this venerable domaine, and it doesn’t hurt that they brought in the same consulting enologist that their neighbor Aubert de Villaine employs. These days Folie may well be making the best wines in its history.
