Claude Vialade, Jordi Salvagnac and the team at Les Domaines Auriol invite customer and press for an evening themed around innovation and environmental awareness on Monday February 11th 2019 (6.30 pm - 9 pm) in the Océanie room (Pavillon 4) of Paris Expo - Porte de Versailles.
During the evening there will be a presentation about the past, present and future of Les Domaines Auriol and the innovative, environmentally-friendly approach that has been the company's DNA from the very start (founder Claude Vialade's father Jean Vialade was a pioneer of organic viticulture in the south of France in the 1970s).
Conflicting reports have been issued about this vintage, particularly by the major French companies. That’s what happens when PR decisions are made a long way away from the vineyards, such is the speed of change this year.
It is true that changeable weather since the spring has had sudden and unpredictable consequences.
We are therefore bringing you our perspective on the vintage and an initial technical and objective analysis.
The 2018 vintage is characterised by variability due, of course, to negative weather events – hail, frost and excess rain – but also to a series of positive climate data regarding sunshine that has been widely reported by the press, and that is the heat wave.
