Confluence

 Produced during a week long residence at Domaine Tournefou for the Champagne label Chasseny d’Arce.

Chassenay d’Arce operates as a coopertaive and I wanted to express this endeavor as something tactile and enigmatic. My thoughts centered on the different influences that each individaul grower contributes to a unified goal, like a confluence of different stories coming together as a coherant entity. Wine growers are the devoted type, exercising a fascinating balance of meticulous, hard work while laying faith toward a unforgiving earth. They seem to posses the ability to coherce something special from the deep within the soil, something savage and lost that they translate into kind, subtle nuance. The brute and scatered rumours that nature hides within her hills are brought together as a singular elixir, intanginble and inviting.
