Alexandre Thienpont and his son Guillaume are currently in charge, devoting all their passion and love to producing ever purer, more elegant wines, a mission that seems almost impossible given that the quality of the wines has long since reached its peak.

La Gravette Certan is the Second wine produced on the estate.
