A family

Paul shared his passion with his wife and children and transmitted his love for innovation and challenges to them.

As a sign of fate, Paul also met Lena, his wife from Sweden, during the grape harvest.  She quickly returned to live in France and supported him in the business.  Paul’s mother, known as “Granny,” also joined him, as well as his children, Christina and Fredrik.

“Granny” remains emblematic of this spirit for many.

As a pillar of the family and a unifier of their small world, she took great pleasure in serving at the Chaintres winery until her final moments in 2011.

“My customers,” as she’d say…

At any time, when customers paid her a visit, she would stop whatever she was doing to greet them!

Among the many projects carried out: the transition to organic farming

Paul learned a lot from his years of farming when volume was king, from machinery, to crop protection agents, to chemical weeding… He understood that it was necessary to quickly change the mode of cultivation and was one of the pioneers of organic farming in the area“It’s only with 50 years of hindsight that we know that it shouldn’t have been done,” he says.  “Today, I believe I have been deceived by modernity and especially chemistry.”

The Château Fouquet vineyard (11 hectares) was organically cultivated from the start.  Planted in 1987, the first organic harvest was in 1990.  Little by little, all the vines on the estate were converted to organic production.

Today, on the 45 hectares of the vineyard, everything is:

  • Either in the 2nd year transitioning to organic (which takes three years total)
  • Or transitioning from organic to biodynamic (which takes an extra year)
  • The 2021 harvest will therefore be fully organic or biodynamic

Parmi les nombreux projets menés : la transition vers la production biologique

Paul a beaucoup appris des années de production où le volume était roi, de la mécanisation, des produits phyto, du désherbage chimique... Il a compris qu’il fallait vite changer de mode de culture et fait partie des pionniers du bio dans cette appellation. « Ce n’est qu’avec 50 ans de recul que l’on sait qu’il ne fallait pas le faire » regrette-t-il. « Aujourd’hui, j’estime avoir été trompé par le modernisme et surtout la chimie ».

Paul n’est pas resté sur ses regrets, ce n’est pas le genre de la maison ! Il amené, avec son équipe, un gros travail de changement de technique (passage en culture raisonnée d’abord, puis en biologique) et de mentalité, appuyé par des formations. Toute l’équipe s’est impliquée et a également choisi de mener une complexe transition vers la biodynamie.
