In 2008 Louis-Clemant David Beaupere took over the family domaine his grandfather had purchased after the Algerian War of Independence (1954-1962). Prior to the wars end, the family resided in Algeria (Pieds Noirs) growing cereals and vines. Clemant (the one out of his three first names he prefers to be called) did not start out in winemaking. He first studied engineering and commerce in agriculture before realizing continuing his family legacy was his true calling in life. Since taking over responsibilities at the estate, Clemant has been making the wines and, along with his mother, working in the vineyard farming their 4.12 hectares of vines. Since 2011, Clement has begun the process of converting the domaine towards organic farming, the goal being to reduce the planting density of the vines significantly as to be able to trellis the vines and move away from the Goblet style of Gamay. Why? Clement contends that Gobelet vine training leads to overlapping positions on the vine and therefore uneven ripening of the fruit. As it stands, his yields average around 40-45 hl/ha, which he hopes to maintain while reducing the amount of vines per hectare. As a child of Julienas, Clemant not only looks to maintain his family legacy but also to improve upon it. In addition to La Bottiere, which lies directly behind his home in Julienas, he is seeking out a few more renowned sites which he ultimately hopes will give him more colors to paint with and accentuate the differences in this great historical cru of Beaujolais.
