After 18 months of ownership he Renaud Mommeja shares with us the experiences as a « recent » winemaker.

Three vintages tasted and discussed: 2007 in primeur, a very interesting vintage with a cold summer but excellent harvest season; 2006 has just come out of its aging; 2005 a finished wine and outstanding vintage, balance, fruit, length, an almost perfect vintage.

Language is French [F].
