When Yannick Burles arrived at the estate in 2013, this former wine merchant and journalist set himself a challenge: "To be equal to the magic of the place to produce wines that combine depth and elegance. Imagine his vision when you arrive: at 900m from the great Blue, all around him are the prodigious slopes of schist and quartz, a centuries-old oak reigning as master and behind him, an old Carthusian monastery from the 17th century that hides many family secrets...
At the beginning, a Gallo-Roman wine-growing estate from the 14th century. Then, a domain in full expansion with the cultures of the monks of the Chartreuse de la Verne. But that's not all! The official painter of Napoleon III, Horace Vernet, passionate about viticulture, will be keen to renovate this estate by building the Château. This estate, with a past steeped in history, finally became a family business managed by Fabrice Faré. In 2013 he recruited Yannick Burles and undertook a major renovation project.
"Farmers in Provence since time immemorial, my family has passed on to me the love of the land, the pampered plant and the healthy fruit. Passionate about wine since adolescence, having had the chance through my previous activities (wine merchant, journalist, buyer) to meet the greatest French winegrowers, I remain above all obsessed by the quality of the final product and the shared pleasure of the taster."
"In the heart of an exceptional natural environment, 900 metres facing the Mediterranean, the Château des Bormettes vineyard extends around a centuries-old oak tree and a 17th century Chartreuse on shale and quartz slopes. With the 2015 vintage, we will exceed 10% red in production, it doesn't seem like much, but it places us among the exceptions of a 96% pink appellation, and it is a new start for a château that stopped producing in 2011."
