The DULON family have been wine-makers from father to son for more than 250 years, although there was one generation when a member of the family became a miller (the mill that still stands next to the house is proof of this). When Jean DULON founded the property, there were only 12 hectares; today Michel DULON manages 130 hectares. Vignobles DULON are situated in the Entre Deux Mers region of the department of the Gironde (33) in South West France. Mr and Mrs Dulon are the owners of three vineyards, which are spreading over the villages of Soulignac, Targon, Langoiran. The exceptional orientation of these vineyards and the specials terroirs provide perfect conditions to produce great wines. We produce quality AOC labeled wines: AOC Bordeaux Rouge, AOC Bordeaux Supérieur, AOC Bordeaux Blanc, AOC Bordeaux Entre Deux Mers, AOC Bordeaux Rosé, AOC Premières Cotes de Bordeaux. – Description from djjoleM

  • As a Californian, I have felt the loss of such old names as Almaden, Christian Brothers and Inglenook.  (OK, I guess Almaden still exists as a mocking shell of its former being.  OK, I know it never was great, but their bottles did have corks.  Maybe I am the only person who feels a sense of loss of Almaden.)  Another of the old abused names is ...

  • Following the 36th anniversary of the Tasting of Paris, I decided my group would explore blind, some French and American wines, wanting to include some wineries involved in the original lineup.  I purposely threw in some surprises to confuse folks too.  I'll list them here, in order of favorites, descending.  The scores are on a 20 pt scale as a...

  • On a warm June day I was lost on the winding roads of Canon-Fronsac, an appellation on Bordeaux’s Right Bank. When I finally turn up more than an hour late at Château Moulin-Pey-Labrie, owner Grégoire Hubau makes a few witty digs about wine critics rarely finding their way to this little-known region. We head for his cellar, hung with amusing po... Read More

  • I've just offered to help some friends select wines for their upcoming wedding, and thought i'd drop in to see if you all had any fresh suggestions.  The price range/bottle is $10-$20, and it will be for at least two types of red wine. Right off the bat, I'm pretty sure I can easily find a good Malbec blend from Argentina that fits the criteria....

  • While much of California’s fame is due to varietal wine, or at least wines that are labeled with a single varietal, there has always been a strong tradition of creating blended wines from the variety of vineyards and grapes that thrive in California. From the original field blends planted by immigrating Italians to the creation of the Meritage ... Read More
