Comic_Strip « La Dame de Pomerol »
Catherine Péré-Vergé (1939-2013), was one of the great Bordeaux wines revolutionaries from the nineties on.
She had one difference though : she was the only woman !
In Pomerol, this iron-willed manager found her home and raised Montviel, Le Gay or La Violette to the highest standards, always with the continued support of her friend Michel Rolland.
The northern heiress to the Cristalleries d’Arques, tenacity was her only watchword.
She took her commitment all the way to Argentina, in the vines of Mendoza.
Her south-american dream, Monteviejo Bodega, a reference of the genre, would be the starting point for the career of her right hand man Marcelo Pelleriti, one of the country’s greatest oenologists.
Catherine Péré-Vergé was a Great Dame of Pomerol and Mendoza.
La Dame de Pomerol is her history.
