Timothée StroebelTimothée’s family came from Alsace, and settled in Champagne after the Second World War. Vineyards were planted in the early 60’s in Villers Allerand, a small 1er cru village tucked in Montagne de Reims, where they still farm today. Two generations later, Timothée had the dream to produce his own Champagne from the plots planted by his grandfather. After studying wine and working in Burgundy, Timothée slowly got back the plots that were divided between the family members. Installation was done in steps: 2001 the vineyards; 2005 the first wines were produced. The domain encompasses the three known Champagne varieties: Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Tim picks at relatively high levels of maturity for the region, and has a Pinot Meunier vineyard plot from which he only makes a Coteaux Champenois Rouge every year “Le Montreval”. When the vintage allows, Timothée will try to make more wine than Champagne, as he often says that ‘La Bulle est accessoire”. If he makes Champagne he needs to feel something, hence, he is not going to produce the same wine twice. From the vintage 2018, all the wines are barrel aged, and he is working towards bigger size barrels starting from 400L. The alcoholic and malolactic fermentation happens naturally, wines are not cold stabilized and there is no dosage nor filtration.In 2018, an exceptional year for both quality and quantity, Timothée has made the decision to produce 5 Coteaux Champenois showing that he really believes in the potential of his grapes. He has made three different still wines (White, Rose, Red), from the Meunier grapes, in order to express the potential of this too often undervalued variety.
We are dedicated to craft wine. Real wine produced by real people in limited quantity, from the new generation of natural winemakers to the classic high-end Burgundians. Sorry, no industrial wine here!
We are not just another Direct-to-Consumer website. Actually, we don't sell directly to consumers at all, as we believe selling wine is an art. We don't want to replace it, rather just make it easier, so you can focus on the art.
We believe the trade should be as fluid as wine. Processes, information and transactions should flow as a fine wine, in and out of a Zalto glass. That's where a Digital Platform can help.
For the wine market to be healthy, firstly it must take care of the producers. We believe that the trade should be fair and transparent, across all channels, from the producer to the final consumer.
