Joel B. Payne writes: "Although he still owns half of Couly-Dutheil, Pierre Couly was thrown out by his brother Jacques when the latter took control of the family business ten years ago. It is not quite fratricide, but it was particularly odd because both were near the age of retirement when it happened. With three hectares from Domaine Farou, his wife’s estate, Pierre and his son Bertrand started over. A decade later, they now have 20, exclusively on the plateau above Chinon. Including the grapes that they buy from their winemaker, father and son now produce about 120,000 bottles a year in a red tower outside of town that is, with the vineyards planted above the fermentation cellars, all part of their marketing concept."
