Winemakers

Charlotte & Christopher Cannan

This Spanish estate was acquired in 1997 by Christopher Cannan and his wife Charlotte, on the recommendation of René Barbier of Clos Mogador. Originally, the vineyard was one small parcel that was replanted with Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2000, a second acquisition allowed the estate to grow and today it has 18 hectares of vines. The subsoil, consisting of the famous Llicorella schist, gives the wines a very distinctive mineral character along with great finesse and extraordinary elegance.
