When George Pernette fell in love with Pasquet, everything had to be redone: the Chateau was in disrepair, the cellar only held a small crop, and the vines had been abandoned.
The property was reconstructed over time, and thus the family estate was born. George's two sons, Michel and Jean-Francois, now run the vineyard. They share the same desire to improve the quality of their wine and to share their passion and knowledge of the winemaking process from the vine to the bottle.
The majority of wines in France are named after their place of origin rather than the type of grape (with the exception of Alsace). A red Bordeaux is a blended wine made primarily of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, just as a red Burgundy is required by law to be made entirely of Pinot noir.
This combination of grape varieties has become so popular and repeated around the world that the term Bordeaux Blend refers to any wine blended in this style, regardless of origin.
