The intuition of man has played an important part in understanding that it would be in this very place that something important would happen – something which would offer new, unique perspectives.
This place is very natural, rough, unspoilt. It is quite a tough site. One would not expect it to be capable of producing this kind of wine. It’s not even the right part of the world for Merlot. It is too extreme. We are always on the edge of making a great wine, and it can go either way. Vines need to suffer, but only up to a point. There is always the risk of failure. But this vineyard always delivers. There is a real power here and it is really nature that makes all the important decisions.
