For lunch, on Friday, February 1st, Mr Clément Fayat and I will received all the brokers and négociants in Bordeaux who buy and sell the wines from Vignobles Clément Fayat:
Château Clément Pichon Haut Médoc Cru Bourgeois
Château Prieurs de la Commanderie Pomerol
Commanderie de Mazeyres Pomerol
Château La Dominique, Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classé which has the clear objective set by the Fayat family to get the status of 1st Grand Cru Classé B in the next revision of the classification.
The reason for this reception is to show the determination of the Fayat family to catch-up on lost time and the ambitious program implemented to make each of these properties successful: The investments done in the past acquiring these vineyards as well as the current ones to provide the proper resources in personnel and equipment to reach these goals.
The beautiful reception and professional tasting rooms are a proof.
This will also be the opportunity to taste samples of the 2007 vintage where our properties will some of the best, as well as the 2006 which is ready for bottling. This will also give us the opportunity the thank every one who believed in us in 2006, and for some for 40 years! (I wasn’t involved at that time!)
La Dominique was bought in 1969, and it is a great opportunity for me to run this beautiful cru which shares almost 1 km of land with Cheval Blanc and has also other prestigious neighbors such as: La Conseillante and L’Evangile à Pomerol, and Jean Faure in Saint Emilion.
