About Our Winery
Our estate is family owned since 1780 and located in the South of France, partly in Rhône Valley and also in the Languedoc region. The cultivation of the vine, the vinification, the raising of the wine and the bottling are carried with a lot of care by our family since generations.
Our estate is composed of 50 hectares with classification of IGP and AOP. Our main grape are syrah, grenache, merlot, chardonnay. We also raise more unique grapes such as petit verdot, pinot noir or viognier.
The climate is very sunny and hot during summer, dry but punctuated with irregular rains. It is therefore Mediterranean type but undergoes a real maritime influence. The soil is composed of rolled pebbles, which allows to store the heat of the sun during the day to restore it at night. These pebbles also allow rainwater to infiltrate the groundwater that will feed the vine during the dry season. The mistral ends up accompanying the development of the vine by cleaning up the grappes. Our Mediterranean climate permits to avoid a lot of treatments of the vines and to preserve the nature and its faune, such as the rabbit.
About Our Region: the Languedoc
This regional IGP covers a very large geographical area spanning from Nîmes to Perpignan and Carcassonne in Languedoc. It is also one of the central pillars of French wine production and exports. Indeed, it provides almost 20% of total French wine exports, representing 65% of French IGP production.
The general style of the wines follows typical Languedoc red and rosé: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Grenache and Pinot Noir. The style also follows usual Languedoc whites, like Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Grenache Blanc or Viognier. Reds are typically of a deeper color, contain more jammy fruit flavors, and possess a full-bodied roundness. They’re generally to be enjoyed in their hardy youth. Whites also tend to be rounder, marked by lightly spiced fruit and a nice freshness that requires an early consumption to be fully appreciated. Rosé are fruity and delicate, and in the line of the Provence that leads the trend, our rosé is light color and easy to drink, refreshing and perfect for aperitif, bbq and fish.
