History & Geography
In the mid-nineties, our family took over a once-important medieval vineyard, a veritable sleeping beauty which had been stuck in an inheritance feud and disregarded for almost 50 years, despite its exceptional potential, because the advent of mechanisation favoured vineyards in the valley by allowing higher yields there. Coaxing out the latent potential, however, required over twelve years of backbreaking vineyard renovation, using the most exacting qualitative practices and coached by some of the best advisors in the world: (in turn, from vineyard to bottle) Claude & Lydia Bourguignon, Philippe Cambie, Zelma Long, Doug Margerum. This allowed us to embark on the transformation of this “diamond in the rough”, and it has been quite thrilling to watch the vineyard recover, then surpass, its original quality.
