Anne PichonAnne Pichon and her late husband, Marc Pichon, started an agrarian-bohemian life together in the 1990’s when they moved into anabandoned farm house at the base of Mont Ventoux. The began toresurrect the a defunct domaine called Murmurium, meaning “thebuzzing song of bees.” And while the 15 hectare vineyard was in poorshape, the site was properly organic for many years leading up to Anneand Marc’s stewardship. Today, Anne produces no more than 40barrels of wine for T. Edward along with her sister-in-law Véroniquewho manages the commercial affairs. The wines themselves are named“Sauvage” inspired by the Pichons’ respect for and attachment tonature.
The micro-climate Anne Pichon’s vineyard is dry, with cool, manuallytilled soils that retain moisture when it rains. And because of the Mistralthat sweeps up from the hills below, fruit is less susceptible to rot anddisease, providing and ideal environment for organic viticulture.Employing careful vineyard management, low yields and lateharvesting, Pichon hand-harvests and de-stems all of the fruit. Redsare vinified in small 50 HL cement tanks or stainless steel, at lowtemperature to achieve a long maceration and two gentle pump oversdaily, with additional manual punch downs if necessary. Thefermentations extend 3 to 4 weeks with a slow progressive increase intemperature to extract a very fine tannin structure. The malolacticfermentation and ageing take place partly in oak barrels but mostly incements tanks. White wines are made from only a light pressing of firstrun juice and vinified in stainless steel tanks with strict temperaturecontrol to maintain a balance of ripe fruit and freshness.
