The Roussillon has been getting beautiful weather while in Bordeaux, the oceanic climate prevailed with bad weather… and still, I still hope to make, with the help of my staff and partners, the best wine possible: one for the history books.
What’s certain is that the Blanc de Valandraud n° 1 2006 will be one of the great white Bordeaux. It will be bottled next week.
As for the 2007 vintage, Thanos Fakorellis asked Murielle to cut a few grapes from the vines of Semillon, to take a few leaves out of the Sauvignon and Semillon to help the grapes reach a perfect maturity. This is precision work as any damage on the grapes could have a negative impact.
