While the first grapes were emerging in the vineyard, Gérard Tesseron was taken from us brutally, leaving as he had lived: with discretion and humility. His passing put the year’s difficult climate into some perspective compared to life’s tragedies. By then, our success in containing the pressure of unparalleled illness had become quite trivial. The vinestock carries within it the memory of the successive generations that have shaped it at some point in its life. It is, however, facing the times ahead, by bearing future crops and forces us to serve it with the same state of mind. We have therefore pampered the young grapes with just as much devotion, but with a heavier heart than usual.

  • Pontet Canet 6xmags 2009

    Snoothrank:

    The first bottle of my 2009 en primeur orders that Im busting open. And I think the second wine of Pontet Canet cant be a bad place to start.
