On the occasion of the launch of its new closure, the DIAM 30 designed for Grand Crus whose longevity can reach up to 30 years, Diam Bouchage organised a series of three rendezvous’ with leading Bordeaux winemakers to recollect on three decades devoted to wine.
For the first edition, the company called upon Michel Rolland. In front of thirty representatives from wine-estates and châteaux in Libourne, Michel Rolland, interviewed by Bernard Burstschy, outlined the key changes in terms of vine management, the wine-making process and communication over the last thirty years.
At the end of this encounter, a choice of international wines using Diam closures was on offer for the guests: Clos de los siete (Argentina) - Aleksic Chardonnay (Serbia) - Vina Jakob (Croatia) - Bonai (Spain) - Henri Cruchon Vignier (Switzerland) - Bouchard Père et Fils Hospice de Beaune (France) - Vigneto Garretti (Italy) - Conte dell Vipera (Italy).
Stéphane Derenoncourt and Hubert De Boüard will participate in the next Diam 30 rendezvous.
Diam 30 is a low permeability closure allowing slow and steady aging; its mechanical properties render it suitable for sealing wines for laying-down. As with all Diam closures (and Mytik Diam in Champagne), it is free from molecules that can cause sensorial deviations in wine. It is therefore the perfect closure for grands crus and a real progress in the corking field.
