In the 2013 edition of the Bettane/Desseauve guide, I read - "En 2010, pour des raisons personnelles, Laurence Faller a quitté le domaine sans que le style des vins ne change"
. My translation would be "In 2010, Laurence F left the estate for personal reasons without any change in the wines' style"
. It could be read, I suppose, as only applying to 2010 but there more likely interpretation of the words would be that it is permanent.
I haven't read about this elsewhere and it seems to be contradicted by this link http://wineawards.info/en/wineawards/profil/faller/
Laurence Faller is the guiding light in the vineyards and wine making cellar so her loss could have a big effect on quality.
Does anyone know the truth?
