WINEMAKING
World-renowned winemaker, Jean-Claude Berrouet, joined Twomey as Winemaking Consultant in January of 2012 to work closely with our then Director of Winemaking, Daniel Baron, on the production of our Merlot. With over 50 years of winemaking experience, including 44 vintages with the incomparable Chateau Pétrus, Jean-Claude is considered to be one of the foremost proponents of “classicist” winemaking, in that his wines are balanced, true to their origins and capable of longer aging.
