The Denis Barraud estate has been family owned since it was first created at the end of the 19th Century. His grandfather, Pierre-Henri Descrambe enlarged it and he passed on to him his love for the vine. Denis has been in charge since 1971.
He's believes you can only make good wine if you have meticulously looked after the vines so that they give good grapes. Denis explains "We take great pains over our viticultural methods to obtain perfectly ripe grapes. We then vinify in such a way as to let these ripe healthy grapes express themselves and in so doing, perfectly reflect our wonderful terroir."
