Jean-François Trontin (Trontin has earned the money in the cement
industry) bought the property in May 2016, and has employed the
oenologist Jean-François Farinet as general director and responsible for wine making.
and Farinet has
relations in Northern
Rhône. There was also a bottle of Cornas for tasting on the domain, and it is
allegedly in the cards that there may emerge
a form of negociant business,
which broadly includes wines from Northern
Rhone and maybe elsewhere.
former owner Vincent Moreau established the domain around 2003. He also
arrived with "capital from home" and built the very
spectacular but beautiful buildings along the road between Cairanne and
Rasteau - many good domains
along this road but not known for
at that time signalized
big wine cellar this was not the case. Wines
were vinified and aged
in a cellar that had belonged to legendary Domaine Rocher
this context, it is not surprising that the new owner has decided to
build his own, probably up-to-date
2018 the construction of a big building was in progress and might
be finished ready for harvest of 2019.
my question, if the finished basement would
not spoil the view of the central buildings, Andréa Dufour reassured me
that it would not be the case at all.
Quote from the domain's website: "In order to obtain wines that
retain the natural power of the Grenache but which win vintage after
vintage, finesse and elegance, we have set up an ambitious program of
restructuring in the vineyard."
