Since 1985, when the vineyard was purchased from the Delon family, Xavier Gardinier has been happily running it, aided by his sons Thierry, Stéphane and Laurent. Enormous restoration work has benn carried out to return the property to its former glory. The buildings, totally renovated in the spirit of their founders, house wine-making equipment wich has been chosen to enable the terroir to express itself in all its complexity. However, despite the undeniable attraction of the buildings’ design and the high tech nature of the equipment therein, they are only the necessary backdrop to the remarkable alchemy that produces each year’s vintage.
