Coulounieix-Chamiers - Vendanges entre amis (Dordogne), France

Bâties sur une amitié forgée par de nombreuses années d’entente, les vendanges se présentaient cette année encore sous les meilleures auspices. Armés de nos lames acérées, chacun de nous se mettait en quête des grappes de raisin qui résistaient encore au temps. De nos mains aux contours salés, nous récoltions les fruits de la terre en offrant à cette cuvée si spéciale le goût de l’amitié.

Built upon a friendship created by years of harmony, the grape-harvest was presenting itself, this year again, under the best auspices. Armed with our shaped blades, each of us was going in search for the wine grapes that were resisting time. From our salted hands, we were harvesting the earth fruits by offering the taste of friendship to this special wine batch.

From inside cultures, people and countries, Léon wants to reflect the world as it is. With and without lines, Léon tries not to lie about what he sees and lets know what people express, and what landscapes tell.
