Wine under water...

Everything started with a discussion among friends: our hotel and restaurant sales manager, Laurent Cerutti, and two of our clients, Mickaël Tanguy and Mathias Legras, both oyster farmers. Generally, oysters and wine only meet at table, forming delicious combinations appreciated by our taste buds.

We wondered whether we could try an adventure together, both for fun and as a learning experience: How would our wines behave if they were aged under water for several months? How would they evolve? We thought it was an interesting experiment, so we tried it out…

A new momentum and new initiatives on the Canadian market...

Laurent Bélisaire, our Export Director, went to Canada from the 16th to the 21st of November to meet our agents, Kirkwood Diamond, and Managing Director Sylvain Brizard, who organised a visit to several S.A.Q. (Société des Alcools du Québec) outlets in Montréal and Quebec City. Michel Gaillard, our technical consultant (and former Production Manager of our group) also went on the trip. Having recently taken the Canadian market in hand, Laurent Bélisaire wanted to provide a new impetus.

Major renovations at Château de Barbe Blanche in time for the 2014 vintage

An in-depth renovation took place at Château de Barbe Blanche in the Lussac Saint-Émilion appellation in preparation for the 2014 harvest. The vat room was modernised, a new grape reception area built, and a new grape sorting system introduced...  The purpose of this project was to enhance the winemaking facilities in the framework of our Environmental Management System , to reduce energy consumption, to improve working conditions and, above all, to participate in our ongoing quest for maximum quality.

The 2014 vintage: a miraculous Indian summer!

This was not an easy year for winegrowers...

The weather during the 2014 growing season was capricious in spring, not very warm in summer – but nothing short of miraculous in September and October.

What a splendid gift Mother Nature gave Bordeaux in 2014: the sort of Indian summer such as the region had not experienced in years! The grapes reached perfect ripeness and there is every indication that this will be a great year in our vineyards.

A trip to Epicurus' Garden to meet the stars...

The centre of Bordeaux becomes effervescent in the middle of June, like it does every year at the beginning of summer.  Why all the excitement?  The return of Epicurus and his stars...

No, these are not the stars of the nearby Bordeaux Opera, but those of French gastronomy who pay homage to fine cuisine and those who love it by devising an unforgettable menu every evening at the Étoiles d’Épicure restaurant. This ephemeral venue, located on the Allées de Tourny, is emblematic of the Épicuriales, an event revolving around fine food and wine that celebrated its fifth anniversary this year. 

 Vignobles André Lurton, faithful partners of the Épicuriales, were present at 2 of these dinners during which their wines were complemented by dishes prepared by three Michelin-starred chefs:  Patrice and Xabi Ibarboure, and Nicolas Frion. We were delighted to meet the stars and provide the wines to accompany them...
