La cuvée devrait porter un nom contenant: rocheux, rocheuse, ou: roque. . . pour rappeler son origine.

Hi, Jean-Marc -

I've been trying to think of the French equivalent of "Rock & Roll", but roque & role doesn't quite work . . . based on George's comment, what about something with some form of rocaille and rouge? Wish I were more creative and my French were better! Congratulations on the successful harvest. Can't wait to taste the results. Love to you and Kristen from Linda and Nancy.

Vous ne pouvez pas vous exprimer en Français , c'est une si belle langue : celle du vin , par excellence !

Hi marc,
I think it has to be called the "SOIXANTE CINQ" the 65 after the age of the vines

La Promesse de Provence, peut-etre? I might leave out the article, for ease on the tongue - Promesse de Provence.

Cheers -

Hi Jean-Marc,

Considering your other cuvées, I think "Galets" would be a nice name.

You might also simply name it "Vieilles Vignes", "Tête de cuvée" or "Cuvée Prestige", but these names a more traditional.

Best Wishes,
Jens

Jean-Marc

Thanks to all for the inputs.
Jean : Sorry but most of my customers are in the US and I don't have time for the French translation (if you wish, you can do it and I will post it).
Et même si j'adore le vin français, je ne pense pas que l'on puisse associer "hégémoniquement" le vin à la France. En fait, je pense même que les plus grands vins actuels ne sont pas faits en France.

I loved all 17 videos! Made me feel present, without the scraped up, bleeding hands and sunburned neck! But also without the wine, food and comraderie. Quel domage! (is that spelled right?)
I love the idea of "Flip Video" - was that an updated model for 2009? The pictures were so clear. I think this will be a Christmas present for my husband. So easy to take out into the vineyard, if only we had one!

love the videos.

Hi Jean-Marc.

You could call your new super wine Cuvee Cecile. You would then express your location and be true to the other site/local names you have for your two first reds.

Dearest Jean-Marc,

I hope it's not too late to comment on this.

The problem with calling the wine "65" is twofold:

1. In a year, it will be 66 years old, then 67, etc.;
2. If wine is made from grapes from these vines year after year, each one would have its year of production, which could perhaps get confusing if the wine were also called by a number - i.e., a "65" from '10, the '11 vintage "65", etc.

To highlight the age of the vines, maybe include the word "Age" in the name? Or "Epoque"? Or something suggesting age, such as "Sagesse"?

Of the above suggestions, I like "Promesse de Provence" the best.

"Sang des Galets"?

Suzanne

Jean-Marc,
Why not convert the idea of rocks with something truly special and name it for a red gemstone ... the French for garnet or ruby perhaps? Can't wait to sip this one ...

Cerelle
