A spell of frost arrived last week during the nights of 19th-20th and 20th-21st of April 2017. Vegetal growth was particularly well developed, especially on the white varieties, due to hot early spring weather.

Noble wine merchants by Claude Vialade : providing a bridge between winegrowers and the market-place
I would like you to discover the men and women winegrowers who are the bedrock and sourcing base of our company. They collaborate closely with our oenologists, Thomas, Benjamin, and this year, Ricardo from Argentina.
All these winegrowers come with moving stories, and plenty of common sense. They have personalities as strong as their terroirs, each one unique and magnificent.
The Mediterranean basin, the Languedoc, the Roussillon, Spanish Catalonia and the Southern Rhône have experienced a dry and warm winter. This situation persisted throughout the spring with low average rainfall.
The summer of 2016 has been hot and dry.
Do not miss the Tv report on French Tv France 2 about our wines "So Light" at the Chateau Ciceron. Some pictures of the shoot in the vines and in the shop with Thomas and Caroline.
