News from the winery

Mathieu watches over the latest vintages and we’re delighted to report that all is looking great.

2016 reds are promising to be as fruity and luscious as the 2015’s but perhaps with a little more elegance. The smaller 2017 vintage looks like being a success for both reds and especially whites. They’re tasting really good as is the 2016 Reserve white which is 100% Sauvignon and has a lovely fresh mineral character.

As in previous years we’ll be releasing the lower priced un-oaked wines around May and the Reserve wines around September

If you think it’s cold…

Heavy frosts have been the hallmark of the past few weeks and the vineyard is also saturated following weeks of rain.

So pity Fifi, Manu and Margaux as they prune the 34 hectares. To keep them going they’ve formed a Grand Mayne choral society, and their voices float across the valley!

We’ve asked them to make a guest performance at one of this year’s events, but so far they’re insistent that they’ll keep their performances to outdoors when pruning. An extra reason to visit before the end of March perhaps?
