Born in 1980, Vincent Chansault is one of the new generation winemakers paving the way for premium wines from Languedoc-Roussillon. Graduating from the school of Viticulture and Oenology in Cognac, he went on to gain valuable experience in the Loire Valley, the Rhône and South Africa where he worked for several years at the famous Boekenhoutskloof in Franschhoek. Back in France, it’s in Languedoc that he makes a memorable impression, and now also as part of the winemaking duo behind the creative and unique wines of Le Nez.
