On His Own

On His Own
Nicolas Haeni is working hard to improve the vineyard soils at Malmont.

When I last caught up with Nicolas Haeni in 2008, he was making the wines for Domaine de Cabasse, a quality estate producing wines from the hilltop town of Séguret as well as Gigondas. At the time, Haeni was developing some new vineyards, a small 10-acre hillside parcel on blue marl and limestone, not far from the vines of Domaine de Mourchon. He managed to keep that parcel for himself, dubbing it Malmont (bad mountain).
