- Elegance without austerity. Chateau de Laborde’s wines possess ample structure and concentration, with ripe red fruits and captivating mineral qualities of earth and smoke.
Hervé Kerlann still has vivid childhood memories of hours spent playing in the Maison Peyrat-Chèze’s family cellars on the Quai du Priourat in Libourne. His maternal great-great-grandfather, Antoine Chèze, was a man with a strong entrepreneurial streak, like many of his wine trader friends from the Corrèze (Moueix, Borie, Manoux, etc). Like them, he was both a wine trader and vineyard owner, possessing around a hundred hectares of vines and several renowned wine domaines. In 1988, anticipating the major economic role that the Asia-Pacific region would play in the late 20th century, Hervé moved to Vancouver, devoting himself entirely to the wine business. After sales experiences in Vancouver, he returned to France in 1991 and fell in love with this fine wine region, which had yet to fully develop its Asian export activity. He put his skills into practice in 1993 with the creation of DDD (Direct Domaines Distribution). This small company is still one of the leaders in the marketing and distribution of (mainly Burgundy) fine wines in Asia today.
