The Estate Michel Couvreur

After a brilliant career as a wine merchant, Michel Couvreur, who sadly passed away in August 2013, had a deep desire to create his own masterpiece. This Flemish-born man discovered whisky thanks to a senior member of the Navy who passed on his passion. A true enthusiast by nature and in perpetual quest for excellence and perfection, he began in the 1970s to dig his own cellars in Bouze-Les-Beaune in Burgundy, where he would age his precious nectars.

Michel Couvreur 's whisky was born from a personal philosophy.

According to him, "90% of the quality of a whisky comes from the cask used" while at the same time, the fashion, at the time, pushes certain brands of whisky in search of volume to use American woods not always of the noblest origin...

He therefore tried to push the quality approach by selecting traditional Andalusian Pedro Ximenez or Oloroso casks (notably from the famous Jerez producer Emilio Lustau) which blend in wonderfully with the taste of the barley and where the Clearach and New Spirit would wait a long time to give birth to the famous Michel Couvreur whisky. Demanding by nature, he does not neglect the rest, importing his water from Loch Katrine in Scotland to Burgundy. He has even grown a variety of barley in the Orkney Islands in Scotland called Bere Barley, the oldest of the Scottish varieties and recognised for its great aromatic qualities for malt production, especially when distilled with the talent of a master...

Considered by whisky lovers as one of the best single malt whisky, Michel Couvreur's whisky is endowed with a rare complexity, a length and an impressive voluptuousness. Several vintages, each with its own personality, are to be discovered for those who do not know them yet, for an exceptional tasting. Please appreciate and taste these wines in moderation.

The Estate Montcalmès

Frédéric Pourtalié has become a Languedoc icon. The Montcalmès vineyard covers an area of 23 hectares today; Syrah and Grenache on a limestone plateau and Mourvèdre on rolled pebbles. A blend has been produced since 1999, the one that made the reputation of the Domaine. It is aged for twenty-four months in barrels, in the purest tradition without fining or filtration, a cuvée of unfailing regularity. Other cuvées made in Montcalmès have since been added to the range, starting with the rare white Marsanne and Roussane as well as Le Geai and a 100% Grenache cuvée. A domain to be drunk with your eyes closed...
