A long project
We are now reaching the completion of a long project. Clos de la Maréchale 2004, the first vintage we have produced since this vineyard is back in our hands, will be bottled in the very next days. We could be tempted now to look back to our work with some satisfaction, but the final verdict on our wines will be up to you. What has been already proven is that, in the very demanding weather conditions of 2004, our new team has been able to control the unusually high vigour of the vines and to keep them in good health. The good weather that took place from the second half of August until the time of harvest then allowed the grapes to reach a perfect ripeness while preserving the brightness of fruits grown under a cool climate. The resulting wines show liveliness, depth and typicity. (May 2006)
