My story

Pascal Chatonnet Bordeaux oenologist, international reference for his multiple hats, and in particular for his important scientific work in the field of vinification and aging of wines in barrels , contamination by various pollutants of chemical origin (anisoles, pesticides, etc.) or microbiological ( Brettanomyces ), which have enabled the international development of the EXCELL analysis and expertise laboratory (HDP Group and now Laffort).
