During 30 years of making wines, I have made changes through comparisons: degrees of ripeness at harvest (BRIX), choice of yeast, oak aging, malolactic fermentation and the potential addition of specialized fermentation products like sacrificial tanning during fermentation, enzymes, or specific inactivated yeast nutrient products

PH and BRIX

Year after year, I wish to produce very consistent wines.

Depending on the outside weather and temperature, the PH level is lower than “ideal” and total acidity high. Some have tried to correct the growing conditions in order to make ripening more predictable: the clusters appearing less mature or too numerous are cut off allowing the vine to ripen more evenly.

Mt personal belief and even more true under the Malibu Californian weather I prefer acidity to sugar that gives wine with too much alcohol for my (French taste) The wine remains crisp, bright and fruity. Competitions wine judges describe it as lemon and grapefruit.

OAK

Since many Chardonnay and white wines in California are “oaky”, I took the decision to try with my white wine. I noted a golden color and promising oaky, buttery and vanilla aromas in our Malibu Pearl. I therefore, was able to produce two different white wines: “one stainless steel” Blanc & Blanc, Santa Barbara County and one aged in oak, Malibu Pearl, Private Reserve.

C’est si bon… Paris by night – Béatrice Cointreau

Preview: My guy is a good wine

My guy is like a good wine. He blossoms in the shadows and improves
with age like a great vintage!

Wines are the expression of a terroir, and although men like to admire its appearance, they really prefer to look under its skirt and inhale the exciting fragrances.

Not everyone has the ability to let time take its time in this bustling world. Giving our most precious possession: time, out of love for delicious food and respect for the winemaker who brings so much pleasure to our lips, is a luxury.

And this wine is happy in our midst, speaking in gravelly tones to some, its voice silky-smooth to others, or velvety for yet others… As varied as the voices of my various lovers, murmuring sweet nothings that make me shiver with desire.

Sometimes the wine talking to us is a neighbor, sometimes it comes from further afield. I like to let myself be carried along wherever these encounters take me, enjoying each variation and discovering new sensations.
