    "Demystifying terroir" Christophe Roumier

    Tuesday Tasting in the heart of Burgundy

    "Demystifying terroir" Christophe Roumier

    Tuesday Tasting in the heart of Burgundy

    This week's Tuesday Tasting played to a packed audience with all eyes riveted on Burgundy and its mythical terroirs. Christophe Roumier, come specially from Chambolle Musigny to be with us, hosted a spectacular horizontal tasting of vintage 2011 followed by a vertical tasting of Chambolle Musigny, Les Cras, 1er Cru (2010 to 2005) culminating with two Corton Charlemagne (2007 & 2011).

    Representing the third generation, having joined his father in 1981, Christophe adopts an ‘organic' approach to viticulture, having been inspired by esteemed friends Dominique Lafon and Frédéric Lafarge, who were early converts to the field. Whilst he does not claim to be strictly organic in very way, he passionately believes in many it of its principals, such as limiting the use of chemical sprays, preferring instead to plough the vines, which he has found results in more diverse and abundant vegetation, healthier grapes and better extraction potential in his wines.

    It this approach, together with conducting his vinifications with as little intervention as possible, which in the end allows him achieve the most pure expression of terroir in his wines.

    "A liquid expression of Valgiano" Laura Collobiano

    "A liquid expression of Valgiano" Laura Collobiano

    See the video

    Yesterday, our ‘Tuesday Tasting' focused on Italy. Laura Collobiano guided us on a journey to Valgiano, her 60ha domaine (20ha of which fall in the appellation of Colline Lucchesi). Located in northern Tuscany, between the Appenine Mountains and the coast, this fertile oasis is farmed biodynamically.

    The assembled guests were all utterly seduced by her wines - Palistorti red, Palistorti white and the Tenuta di Valgiano red tasted across several vintages - which she describes as "a liquid expression of Valgiano and its landscapes”.

    "One of the finest vintages I've made"

    Presentation on vintage 2012 by Bruno Lorenzon

    "One of the finest vintages I've made"

    Presentation on vintage 2012 by Bruno Lorenzon

    Bruno Lorenzon, winegrower in Mercurey (Burgundy), visited Caves Legrand for a tasting showcasing his 2012 vintage.

    A vintage he describes as "athletic” capable of "keeping pace with Usain Bolt”. An apt metaphor from this rugby and cycling fanatic who works his wines like a sports coach. He proudly presented his Champ-Martin, Pièce 15 and Pièce 13, which beguile with their balance, elegance and vibrant acidity. He confided in us that it was "the finest vintage he'd ever made”, one he dreams about making every year.

    The first time I laid eyes on this site, I was spellbound...” Jean Orliac

    The first time I laid eyes on this site, I was spellbound...” Jean Orliac

    See the video

    Link to video (in french) : http://bit.ly/1kXacmM


    For Legrand Filles et Fils, Jean Orliac looks back over the twenty years he, and his wife Marie-Thérèse, have spent building Domaine L'Hortus.


    In the beginning there were no vines, only some abandoned terraces and rocky slopes nestled between the dramatic cliffs of Pic St Loup and the Montagne de L'Hortus. Entranced by the idyllic setting, and convinced the terroir had potential, Jean (whose grandfather was also winegrower) and his wife moved to la Combe de Fambétou in the 70s.

    They started from the ground up, building everything from the winery to a family home. Over the next twenty years the couple devoted every weekend and holiday to clearing the terrain and planting their 60ha vineyard. It took ten years before they were ready to release their first vintage in 1990.

    His range of wines: red, white and rosé, the ‘Grande Cuvee' Domaine L'Hortus, second label wines from the estate and also grapes and wines carefully selected from neighbouring vineyards (Bergerie de L'Hortus) are renowned worldwide and have played a major role in building international recognition for the wines of Pic St Loup.

    Jean and Marie-Thérèse's four children, Marie, François, Yves and Martin have now taken up the helm and continue their parent's work with equal passion and determination.

    "Biodynamics, a philosophy" Thierry Germain - Domaine des Roches Neuves

    "Biodynamics, a philosophy" Thierry Germain - Domaine des Roches Neuves

    See the video

    Thierry Germain, winegrower at Domaine des Roches Neuves, was at Caves Legrands for our ‘Tuesday Tasting' on 11th February.

    He joined Domaine Roches Neuves in 1993, switching to biodynamic cultivation in early 2000s - obtaining Biodyvin certification in 2002 - following an encounter with Francois Bouchet, a consultant and author of a textbook on bio-dynamic viticulture which taught him the importance of plant husbandry.

    More than just a passing ‘fad', biodynamics is, according to Thierry, a philosophy rooted in all living things. Whilst he concedes "biodynamics is not an assurance of quality”, it has transformed his perception and understanding of plants. His yields may be altered, but so too have the balance of sugars, alcohol and acid in his wines.

    These choices bore fruit when, in 2004, Thierry Germain was featured as one of Wine Spectator's Top 100 Winemakers in the world and named ‘France's best winemaker' by Revue de Vin de France in 2011.
