Join us at Bâtard for an evening with Antoine Lepetit de la Bigne – long time former winemaker at Domaine Leflaive, and renowned expert in biodynamic viticulture. Antoine will join us this evening via Zoom while we get the chance to taste the very first vintage under his own name, imported to Hong Kong exclusively by The Fine Wine Experience.
Antoine brings an extremely impressive CV to the table. Initially trained as an engineer at an elite school, he completed his M.Sc in Agronomy, and a masters in Viticulture and the French National Diploma in Oenology. He then joined pioneer biodynamic estate Zind-Humbrecht in Alsace, before spending 8 years at Domaine Anne-Claude Leflaive in Puligny-Montrachet. His academic skills, and deep experience in biodynamics led to him being recognised as a leader in this field with a successful global career in consulting and publishing on the subject.
As you might imagine, the approach here is rigorous, methodical, thoughtful and progressive, with a mix of vessels employed – 228, 350, and 1200 litre oak, as well as amphorae, all with clear ideas in mind. The wines are pure and vibrant with an effortless style. Many eyes are of course on Antoine Lepetit de la Bigne as he embarks on his new venture, and we have no doubt that his wines will become quickly sought after and highly allocated in the vintages to come.
Join us this evening to see for yourself, here from and discuss the wines with Antoine, and enjoy a dinner to complement the wines prepared by Bâtard.
