A few growers have the chance to own a single vineyard, » a monopole »and to try to express Â the quality of it. It is a challenge because with no comparaison competition is » virtual »… But it is so challenge that all is done » Haute Couture », specially if youtalk Â first cru and Grands crus. Some remarquable locations and wines in addition to the famous RomanÃ© Conti, La Tache, la RomanÃ©e… are be Clos de Tart, Clos de la Perriere, La Grande Rue, the special vineyard Clos du Chateau de la Maltroye planted 50% white, 50% red, … Meeting these owners and wine makers is a special moment, when you associate experience, relation between terroir and vintage, risk to take to optimise quality and complexity( organical farming, plowing….) and all is in a bottle of wine… Not many products could be proud to answer to these caracteristics. And all of them are giving us pleasure and memories… Do it!
It is nice to see the new generation taking over a domaine; 18 HA, with many small vineyards and a lot of appellations becoming the Hope of the Year 2011. Aude and Guillaume are running with talents this historical domaine.
Many nice comments all around the world with the 2 previous vintages were already a sign of the change and of the reognised quality during the blind tasting.
And it is done on details, with a converstion to organical farming sicne several vintages, a hard selection of the grapes when they arrived at the cuverie, an association between wine making, finess, quality of barrels, respect of timing for the wines to become » ready to be bottled »…. Â Enjoy and share with your friends
If I was,… I don’t know
but I would love all of us happy, healthy… with happy family, friendship, pleasure, love…
Also, I wish my and your Â dreams become reality. But we could just be positive, friendly, smily… tolerent, warm, and taking care of the others… It will be great and the world will be better. Be part, and be happy.
We wish you a Merry Christmas.
2011Â warm and dry… All the growers express this situation, but the vineyards are in good health. Quite no treatment,Â the winter work was done nicely, the springÂ had to be done quickly and the growers had to work hardÂ . Some bottlings were post pone. Â But now, the flower is working nicely (we hope not to get some thunderstorms in the next days), This warm weather being » exceptional… We could expect an harvest around the 25th of August/ 1st of September… up to the next 2 months.
Yes, they invested on many ways:oak, barrels, wine-maker, details, the Â farming in Â vineyards, But we could see the quality increasing on the past 2 years… and with the 2009, they just got the Gold medal for their Bouzeron ( 100% aligotÃ©),for the Rully white,and a silver for their red rully. Bravo! and their success is also recognised with Decanter One bronze medal, and 2 silver medals…. Opportunity for the good distributors to develop a new domaine. Let me know, Jeanne Marie
Yes, Chateau Couronneau is coming often on my list, but he got 2 gold medals at the Concours d’Aquitaine, and one silver medal… Thanks Christophe and Benedicte for your meticulous work!
And he is organic, cetified ecocert since 2000… and one of the most chateaux having mÃ©dals….Â be courageoux, buy…

Just a revolution,… Since 1949 theÂ famous label of the ChÃ¢teau,Â which is so classic and distinctive for red wines, has been changed for a modern label done with autorisation of Toroni, one of the most famous modern artist…
Each wine will have his colour, following the wines, a light pink for the BourgogneÂ Pinot NoirÂ is a contrast with the other colours for villages and first crus.Â I am sure the young generation will enjoy… And good news, due to the quality, the red wines have just been bottled, full of fruit, association of red aromas with the limestone of Chassagne Montrachet( 50% of the appellation is Pinot noir planted!)…. Have a look in the stores in a few weeks.
