The rebirth of a wine
History: it was born after the storm in the summer of 1992. Mr Durou decided to grass the vines in order to stabilise the pebbled terroirs. He realised that certain plots could offer a higher quality due to a drop in vigour and deep rooting. He found the wines he tasted in his childhood more concentrated and that he loved, for him this is the rebirth of the Cru de Gaudou.
