In 2001, her son Pierre, after spending ten years in finance, was caught up by his enthusiasm for the family vineyard, joining the domaine and creating a new collection of wines. The predominant characteristics of the wines produced by Jacqueline and Pierre are a surprising freshness, soft and rich with a lively vinous style, intense fruit and a refined mineral texture.
