Vineyard owner, Henri Darnat, says that making great wines requires patience and “the courage to wait”; waiting for optimum ripeness to time the harvest as the September weather can be changeable, waiting on the wines as they ferment with their own natural rhythm barrel by barrel, waiting and tasting the wines so they are bottled at their optimum point of purity and liveliness. The pride of his work is that his wines are represented on the best restaurant lists of France and the world.
