2018 – A surprising vintage in which we couldn’t afford to let down our guard…

At the cusp of autumn, I will try, as usual, to give you my read on this 2018 vintage. The vinification isn’t yet complete, and even if it was a vintage that often left us puzzled, its current contours confirm its very seductive quality. After a very “low yield” 2017 vintage, the budbreak started vigourously […]

What’s more expensive: organic or conventional farming?

We hear it all the time: eating organic is more expensive! It’s true that most organic products are more expensive than their conventional counterparts. But are they really? Not if we integrate the environmental, health and social costs of conventional agriculture. Impact on the quality of water: the best quantified effects are those related to […]

2016, a vintage of filled with promise…

2016’s growing season was exceptionally favorable to the vine. Nature has given us a vintage that won’t soon be forgotten. After a mild and slightly rainy winter, a cool wet spring triggered a somewhat delayed bud break (marking the end of winter dormancy, bud break is the moment when the new leaves push through their […]

Splitting Wood

The trade press is just beginning to talk about a topic that greatly concerns many winemakers here in France – the sharp increase in vine mortality due to what is euphemistically called “wood diseases.” Every year, an average plot in France can lose between 1.5% and 3.5% of its population (in a decade that means […]

With the Spring coming up, a new face for our Domaine Gassier’s wines !

We are proud to announce the birth of Domaine GASSIER, the result of a common passion that Tina, my wife, and I have for wines focused on freshness, dynamism and mineral balance. Our corner of paradise is a terrace overlooking the Camargue, with a limestone subsoil that offers tension and minerality, and a cooler microclimate […]

The 2017 vintage: a supermini year

2017 will remain on record as the smallest harvest in France since World War II. A combination of factors including freezing, hail, shattering and drought severely limited production in France, and across Italy and Spain. For the first time in a very long time, world wine production will be significantly lower than consumption (I am […]
