The Estate

Based in Bué, the Pinard family, now led by Clément and Florent but still under the watchful eye of their father Vincent, is continuing its spectacular progress towards excellence, with organic farming and an exacting desire to transcribe each specific terroir as well as possible.
The Sauvignon parcels are now at an exceptional level, neck and neck with two or three other estates in the appellation.
The Pinot Noir still has no equivalent... and remains a very rare item...
