These days, we often receive compliments and orders from restaurants for Virginie and Valandraud whites. This makes us happy and we are proud that our friend Athanasius Fakorellis has been helping us. In his youth, he worked as enologist in Burgundy with a few famous properties such as Lafont, Clerc, Sauzet, Moret, to name only famous whites.
Murielle and I are
strongly influenced by great Burgundy whites and we think that we created,
through our hard work, a synthesis between white Bordeaux and Burgundies. Some of
the American or French critics love our white; others are totally allergic to
it! It is certainly hard to please everyone, but for vines planted in 2000 I'm really
proud of our achievement!
