Vignobles Malartic are delighted to present you its Environmental Charter, which presents a summary of the rigorous eco-dynamic good practices to which the Bonnie family and its team have been committed since 1997.
Certified in sustainable farming since 2008, in 2015 we will be tackling HEV (High Environmental Value) approval for Château Malartic-Lagravière and Château Gazin Rocquencourt’s 75 hectares (185 acres) of vines.
Well beyond these certifications, we apply our eco-dynamic measures on a daily basis to the care of the vines as well as to the whole estate (facilities, park and gardens) in order to reduce our environmental impact to a minimum. This has been beneficial for the surrounding area, and has also a direct effect on the wines; with the passing years, the latter have gained in depth, minerality, and character, and require less human intervention.
The 2014 vintage will soon be available for en primeur tasting, and you will see that it offers a superb demonstration of the impact of these environmentally friendly practices on our wines. The weather in 2014 was somewhat capricious until the beautiful Indian summer, making good management of vineyard vitally important. The results are extremely promising.
