Ah yes

Much talk in Singapore about terroir: what it is, who has it and so on. And we won’t burden you with anything too  profound or enlightening on that on this page.

Clos VougeotHowever, Francois Labet,  from Clos-Vougeot,  for instance said terroir is, "Blood, sweat and soil. And history."

And that will do.

But we should perhaps allow that we, upside down in the new world, acknowledge and build on that same history. All that we know comes from Burgundy, and even the vines that we plant have their origins in those  great vineyards established by the monks all those centuries ago. Kai Schubert made us laugh when he said, "Our problem with terroir was that we didn’t have any. So we had to go out and find some." Greening also, saying, "We didn’t have terroir, we had dirt."


Two PaddocksWell we now have our own terroir, and all of us Pinot maniacs have our own unique little pieces of earth that we love  and cherish, each to his own.
