Domaine Rene Mure, Alsace
René Muré and his children Véronique and Thomas represent the 11th and 12th generations of winegrowers.The Muré family are winegrowers in the region of Rouffach since 1650. In 1935, Alfred Muré, René’s grandfather, bought the Clos St Landelin, a 32 acres family-monopole vineyard. Clos St. Landelin was organic certified in 1999 with plans for biodynamic certification by 2015. To express the “terroir” in the wines and to preserve the heritage, this is the Muré family’s credo high-density plantations, ploughing of the soils, no chemical products, fermentation with wild yeasts and limitation of the work in cellar. The Domaine Mure Wines are known for power, elegance and age worthiness.
Domaine Taupenot-Merme, Burgundy
(Represented in BC)
The family Estate has been based in Morey Saint Denis since 1760. Virginie and her brother Romain represent the seventh generation. The Domaine consists in 20 appellations spread over 32 acres both in the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits ranging from 7 villages AOCs (Gevrey Chambertin, Chambolle Musigny, Saint Romain…) some Premier Crus (Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru La Combe d’Orveau, Nuits Saint Georges 1er cru Les Pruliers, Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru La Riotte, Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Bel Air…) to Grand Cru appellations (Charmes Chambertin, Clos des Lambrays, Mazoyères Chambertin, Corton). The vineyards have been farmed organically since 2001, with no certification. The style of their wines focuses on complex but pure flavours, paying respect to their climats and vintage characters. To that end, everything is done in the vineyards and in the winery to get a concentrated fruit to capture that finesse and elegance, which are truly authentic. Today, their wines are distributed in more than 32 countries and they think their grandfather, Armand Merme, who had in the seventies the idea of parking a caravan by the main road to sell his wines, would have never dreamt of that.
Champagne Lallier, Ay
The House Lallier was created by Rene-James Lallier, a well-known family in Champagne. Established in the famous village of Ay, in the heart of the Champagne region, Ay has always been renowned for its exceptional wines. It is mentioned in writings dating back to the 1st century and was one of the favourite wines of Henri IV. In 1936, Ay became one of the first communes in Champagne to be classed as a Grand Cru. In 2003, Lallier’s winemaker, Francis Tribaut, who is the 4th generation of a family of vine-growers, purchased the winery.
