“Born in Bordeaux, I was naturally drawn to the fascinating world of
wine, and studied both its production and its commercialisation. I later had the good fortune to meet my husband, Pierre, who comes from a long line of St Emilion winemakers. In 1999 we took over the family business and, complimenting and encouraging one another, we have applied both our ideas and our values to this delightfully situated estate. It is with honour and enthusiasm that I direct both my energy and my feminine intuition to the daily organisation of our estate.”
