1990 at Domaine de Marcoux

Philippe’s notebook began with these words: “This year is definitely the start of a great adventure, and of a big change in mentalities for us and the estate. I have put in place a system of biodynamic cultivation. This involves giving the preparations based on dynamised composts, minerals and plants to the soil and vines in order to instil a close relationship between them and the cosmos.” Our organic and biodynamic methods – uncertified as yet – only introduced to just a single 7 ha plot in the Pradel locality. Indeed, it proved to be an outstanding year. Large amounts of superb grapes, and wines of magnificent quality. One of the finest vintages of recent years.
