Henri Darnat’s aim is to make wines which are both drinkable in youth and age-worthy. He is inquisitive and hugely energetic, always striving to innovate.
Henri’s relationship with oak is illustrative of this studied avoidance of fashion. Having eliminated new oak barrels from his wines at the same time as he received organic certification over a decade ago, he is now experimenting once more. These are wines of early pleasure but which repay cellaring.
