Vineyard

-

Jean-Philippe and Geoffroy, the two sons of the family, have started up vinegrowing again, giving back to the domain its original activity. In 2001, they farm 42 acres of vineyards, AOC Côteaux du Languedoc. They choose to practise an environment-friendly agriculture. They restore the old plots, that lay fallow, to their former vocation. Tons of stones are removed by hand, to leave place to young vine-plants. And gradually, terraces are built on the slopes. This soil enjoys a very specific climate, that is ideal for an optimum maturation. The grapes are grown by hand, according to organic agriculture, in order to preserve the biodiversity within the vineyards.

 

Then, it’s time for the work in the cellar. A mix of passion and tradition. Old methods and modern processes go hand in hand, to provide a better aroma extraction from the grapes. This is how the distinctive scents of the surrounding garrigue, like pepper and cade, are brought out in the wine.
