There are many surprises contained in the original Charles Coury Vineyard.  Many years ago, we heard about a story involving Charles Coury visiting the Henri Gouges vineyard in the early 1960's.  While there he was given permission by the owners of the domaine to take cuttings from their recently mutated "Pinot Blanc" vines.  These vines are planted in the very first row that Charles Coury put into the ground in 1966. This row is also known as the ‘Scion Block’.
