Legendary winemaker Brian Dolan took the radical step of bottling Metala under its own label in 1959 and won the inaugural Jimmy Watson Trophy in 1962. Two generations later, the brothers Tom and Guy Adams took a similar leap of faith and branded their Metala fruit as Brothers In Arms. The quality of wine re established Metala as a vineyard of global significance and claimed George Mackay Trophy as.. The goodly farms of brothers in arms»

The sanctity of pure varietal wine is a Burgundian tradition. At Maison Louis Jadot the philosophy is to respect origin of fruit, as each wine is encouraged to develop its own personality. Parcels of Pinot Noir typically grown to limestone over calcareous marl soils, are macerated for long periods in open wooden vats to extract colour and tannin. The base wines are all fermented by a number of dedicated growers over a period of two weeks, to the unique style of each individual sub-region. At every stage of the process, human intervention is kept to a minimum. After final assemblage, the finished Cuvee is matured over a period of nine to sixteen months, partly in small 228 litres oak barrels and partly in vats.
