Château La Violette 2018

  • Further details
  • Henri Parent is a worthy heir to his mother, Catherine Péré-Vergé: his commitment to the family vineyards is absolute. Along with the Argentine engineer Marcelo Pelleriti and the oenologist Michel Rolland, he is part of a remarkable trio that is tireless in its mission to bring out the full potential of these wines.  

    This year, there has been more worry than justification for that worry. The apparatus - bougies, wind turbine, Agrofrost frostbusting machine - that was bought in reaction to the destructive frost of 2017 stayed under covers, to the great relief of all.  

    The fermenting room was rethought four years ago, with five thermo-regulators that allowed Parent to broaden the scope of micro-vinification to include all the wines, and he has now set his sights on renovating the cellar: "The recently planted vines are now ready for inclusion in the wines and we are starting to feel rather short of space".  

    While Le Gay and La Violette were both made in the same place, they are entirely distinct in the pleasures they offer the drinker: the former packed with pretty fruit, the latter notable for its floral delicacy.
