After studying physics and chemistry, and various experiences in Bordeaux and Burgundy estates, Arthur Lotrous returned to his native Mâconnais to live a crazy project: at the age of 28, take over a vineyard in Saint-Amour-Bellevue. , the northernmost of the Beaujolais villages.
This adventure then takes the name of Sources of Agape in reference to the ancient Greek "Agape" synonymous with divine and unconditional love.
The Les Sources d´Agapé estate, like the Clos des moines Clunisiens, is made up of an islet of 6 ha of vines in Cru Saint-Amour. The estate overlooks the appellation, on the slopes of Mont-Besset. There is sandstone which outcrops in the upper part, then sandstone scree and finally alluvial deposits, which implies superficial soils at the top and increasingly deep at the bottom of the domain. This hill on the place called Côte de Besset is oriented east-northeast. The estate also has two Cru Juliénas plots on the south face of Mont-Besset on an area of 0.5 ha with soils made up of blue stones.
