Winemaker’s Voice ......................16
CEO and Winemaker, Château Pichon Longueville - Comtesse de Lalande
As we observe a work of art, a photograph, wine is a parenthesis and a journey through time, which belongs only to oneself and to those with whom we share it.
This is «only» wine and yet it generates so much emotion.
It is therefore at the same time a product of the Earth, a product of labor, and a creation, a form of expression and artistic interpretation ... therefore, very personal.
Like wine, our profession of winemaker is complex: we share between scientific theory (factual and implacable) and empiricism which constrains the observation of its environment and to listening to its soil.
Wine is a vector of civilization, of getting closer to one another; It is a hyphen.
In a word, wine is sharing!
What was your last wine emotion?
