Merveilles" (plateau of wonders) which is the same plateau as Saint-Emilion and Pommerol.  The vines are planted on Silica-clay soil with clay-chalk subsoil and the vines are 55 years old.  The combination of poor soils, free drainage, old vines and biodynamic production means the vines have a naturally very low yield of only 16hl/ha.  This is seriously high quality fruit and enables Jean Pierre to make the wine with no sulphur added at bottling at all.  The fermentation and ageing are done ‘par dynamisation’ (a special way of stirring the lees) and according to the lunar cycles. The wine is aged for 24 months in old oak barrels. This is simply amazing white wine.  When I first tasted it at dinner with friends there was a short silence as we all first sipped and were blown away by its sheer class.  A must try for white lovers everywhere, you cannot, not think this wine is fabulous.  The name of the wine Marie Cécile is a tribute to the family’s ancestors.
