Pierre-Christophe Monnier has constantly felt the desire to improve his chateau’s wine. The introduction of traditional farming techniques on his 31 hectare vineyard (such as lowering the vines so the grapes can benefit from heat reflected off the gravel) and the development of a modern charismatically-circular winery, were ultimately followed by converting to organic agriculture. This certification was achieved in 2011, and the winery is already experimenting with biodynamic techniques. The amazing terroir of the chateau, which is made up of gravel as deep as 17 metres, nurtured vines, a perfect balance of grape blends and careful aging in French oak produce a wonderfully rich Médoc, and this winery only promises to keep improving.
