Having crossed the threshold, as you remove your coat, take care to remove your watch as well. There is no longer any rush. We are now on vineyard time. It is now the vine, along with the climate, which decides. For some time now, we have synchronized our internal clocks with those of the plants. Having learned that fighting, forcing and bending are useless; we have instead dedicated our energy to observing, listening, breathing and maybe even understanding. We invite your senses to come sample this rhythm of nature: the vine and its fragrances, the history of the varietal, a charming cabin in a vineyard setting. Here you can experience the wine, free from rules governing its making or its tasting. Our ancestors were winegrowers, our great-grandfather a barrel maker, our grandfather a wine broker… Indeed, we have approached wine from all angles! And, the essential is the lovely grape that we seek to draw out in every glass. The grape is where it all happens. In the wine storehouse, where each vintage reveals a unique personality, we search tirelessly for the perfect combination that will accentuate the grape, as it is, unique to its particular year.

Avis de Vin Frais Blanc 2016

Crisp lively acidity, floral and colorful, notes of grapefruit and lemon rind with a hint of white spices. A wine that doubles up as an aperitif and a meal accompaniment!

Viognier and Chardonnay blend.
The plots are located to the east of the village of Minervois and enjoy a nice natural acidity.
Vinification is done in the pure tradition of the classical whit: the two grape varieties are assembled with the press, pressed directly and vinified at 16 °C.

Avis de Vin Frais Rose 2016

Watermelon and strawberry candied notes. Mouthwatering acidity. Jolly and refreshing!
It is an immediate pleasure, especially throughout the summer!

Cabernet Sauvignon and Cinsault blend.
The cinsault and cabernet-sauvignon are from plots specifically cultivated for rosé. As soon as the picking takes place, a single direct pressing retains only the first juices, the latter being reincorporated in the tank for the reds.
