Very promising harvest for 2018 vintage

Crates full of cabernet

Harvest time! The fruits of the 2018 campaign were hand-picked on September 20 (Merlot) and 29 (Cabernet). After a difficult year (until mid-July) because of mildew, 2018 offered us beautiful harvest under the sun. The vats have welcomed rich grapes, colorful but with a nice acidity. The vintage should therefore give us well-balanced wines – I do not like this term because it often means average level in every component of the wine therefore a lack of personality which is really not the case here. Something between 2015 and 2016 … 2 very great vintages. The alchemy of fermentations and ageing must then operate to confirm these promises.

Thanks to the harvesters, especially Gwen, Béa, Valérie, Marie, Gaël, Lionel, Michel, Stephane, Pierre, François, Dany but also Gaby, Lili and Zoé for the hand-destemming of cabernet grapes!

After RAW: UK votes “YES” for Valmengaux!

Several UK bloggers talked or wrote about Valmengaux after RAW London last March. They said Valmengaux is the new Bordeaux generation!

  • Here, about jar/amphora wines and there, among other wineries
  • 2 videos: here (starting at 2:00 ) and there

Last but not least, 2 really nice London citizens came to visit Valmengaux. They were (and still are) on a motorcycle wine trip though France, Italy and Croatia (“the Grape Escape”!). A sourcing trip indeed as they plan to open a nature wine bar in East London and import those wines in UK. A nice adventure for them too and a great encounter they recounted here and there. To be continued…

London calling! RAW WINE FAIR (11 & 12 March)

Coming after La Rochelle, and before Vinexpo Hong Kong (end May), RAW WINE London.

What’s RAW WINE? More than just a wine fair (several indeed: London, Los Angeles, New York, Berlin), it’s a plateform that promotes “clean” wines: natural, organic and biodynamic wines. In other words, authentic wines from low-intervention growers – just what’s necessary to express the terroir. This RAW WINE co-founder video explains that clearly.

So, RAW WINE London 2018, it’s 150 growers from all around the world and, guess what, Valmengaux is one of them. RAW WINE London welcomes the wine and food trade, the press and the general public. The fair is held at The Store Studios, 180 The Strand (London). Come to see us and taste tons of good and sometimes surprising wines.

NB: fair opened to general public only on Sunday. No direct sale

We will be at “Sous les pavés, la vigne” wine fair, on Feb. 10th and 11th, in Bordeaux

L’image contient peut-être : texte

“Vins actuels et naturels”, whatsdat? Handcrafted non-conventional wines by the way they are made (organic, few/no additive during  winemaking and ageing) then by their character (usually expressive and “living” wines). Simply said, wines with personality… like Valmengaux!

We’ll be there then! You will have the opportunity to taste (and buy) our wines. Meet you on Feb Sat 10th and Sun 11th, from 10am to 7pm, Hangar 14, Quai des Chartrons in Bordeaux!

All the best in 2018

2017 is over for a few weeks yet: first year of the new Domaine de Valmengaux, first year for many things for us.  A year of doubt, pressure, fatigue but also fun, support and great hope for the future!

We wish a super 2018 year to all of you who have been following us and drink Valmengaux – to us too for sure!

David and Valérie VALLET
