Chapter VIII : Epilogue
In 1960, Lucien and Lulu’s two sons joined them in the family business – François in charge of viticulture and Jean-Marie as winemaking and marketing manager. Their wives later became involved in promoting the wines.
François and Jean-Marie rose to the challenge by focussing on one of the estate’s unique features – its single vineyard wines (cuvées de terroir) from the La Migoua, La Tourtine and Cabassaou vineyards. Given the rich geological make-up of these sites and their own considerable wine-tasting skills, the brothers decided to preserve the character of each vineyard by producing four distinct cuvées, to the great delight of wine aficionados.
