(07) Ardèche

In the south of the Rhône valley between the Volcanic Piedmont of Coiron and the sublime Gorges of the Ardèche, our estate extends over 15 hectares. located on hillsides at an average height of 380 metres, our Domaine, certified in organic farming, benefits from the richness of the clayey-limestone but also basaltic soils, which give our wines a distinctive character and signature. To date this estate is in the hands of the 4th generation of the ARSAC family, founder of the estate, namely Joel (my father) dimitri (my brother) and myself sebastien (son) ARSAC. Enhancing our soils (in order to compete with the vine but especially for the fight against soil erosion), manual pruning, disbudding before flowers, Manual harvesting exclusively in 20kg boxes to preserve the quality of our grapes, vinification by gravity, parcel vinification,... all its practices have the aim of obtaining elegance and richness on our wines . the estate's yields are around 35 hectolitres/hectare, which is certainly low, but where only quality and aromatic concentration are sought. Our manures are made exclusively from compost made with our small herd of cattle, which gives us total autonomy (these composts are also composed of stalks from destemming just before vinification) Among our plots, we have a plot of Syrah called "Les Aoutres" located on the sides of an old volcano, therefore on basalt soil, which offers us a vintage "Les Aoutres" with incredible notes of black fruit and a superb freshness... linked to the volcanic soil.

Our story

With my brother, we are the 4th generation, and paradoxically things are happening because we are returning to certain farming practices identical to those carried out by our great grandfather (grassing of the soil for example) but above all all our wines are made from indigenous yeasts, that is to say, from our own grapes. A few days before the harvest we make a leaven (or vat base) which will be used to sow our vats for alcoholic fermentation.

Other little stories

The winegrower is a craftsman of nature! I live in my vineyards, I know almost every single vine stock, and understand its health better.... Wine is made in the vineyard! It is not an empty phrase, but the grape is our raw material and the quality of the grape is the sinequanone condition for a high quality wine. All the wines on offer on Les Grappes all bear the signature of my terroir, and above all each glass tells the story of my estate and also that of my ancestors without whom we would not know much. The relationship with my grandfather (94 years old) is the person who taught me everything about the vineyard, our soils, the smell of the earth, the life of our wines...

Wine is a social, incredible link, and in order to make it known to a wider audience, it is important to have a relaxed, sharing approach. A glass of wine is a story of life in men's lives, in territories, but also a story between friends.
