Robert, Vintner Winemaking

“I can say, without hesitation, that Pascal is one of the most capable and knowledgeable winemakers that I have met in more than thirty years of winemaking.

He has a thorough understanding of all aspects of wine production, from vineyard to marketing and is able to articulate this knowledge in the most appropriate time.

He is truly committed to make great wine and to take all the necessary care, to ensure wines as good as they can be.

I can summarize up his approach to winemaking citing the old adage : “If better is possible, then good is not enough.”

He’s aware of oenological innovations and discoveries; at the same time, he shows a deep respect for traditions.

I’ve been impressed with Pascal’s understanding of wine chemistry and interactions between wine and wood and how these will influence the final outcome.

Also, he demonstrates his deeply understanding of the fermentation, the stabilisation, and the filtration or even the importance of the role of oxygen in winemaking.

I have no doubt Pascal will improve the wine quality of any winery where he is employed.”
