In 2011, Bernard Callet embarked on a crazy gamble: rebuilding a new winery. He also banned unnatural fertilizers and weed killers and chose to harvest and sort the grapes by hand. A gamble that paid off, since 2012 the praise has been pouring in! The vintages are appearing in the major guides (Hachette, Gault & Millau) and on several starred tables!
Established on a terrace, the Domaine Coudoulis overlooks the town of Saint-Laurent-des-Arbres. With a magnificent view of the medieval castle on one side, and a breathtaking panorama of the Mont Ventoux on the other... Every day we have to be at the height of this treasure: 28 hectares in one piece where the famous pebbles abound. A fabulous terroir!
In 1996, I decided to change my life. I had always wanted to make wine and I was looking for an estate with a strong terroir potential. My first contact with Domaine Coudoulis went beyond my expectations: I saw the possibility of writing a strong and authentic story in time, even if, for some, it was necessary to be a bit crazy to be interested, at that time, in the vines of the Lirac appellation. It is important to understand that at the time of discovering this estate, bottling was not a priority. But in my eyes, Domaine Coudoulis could and should compete with the greatest appellations of the Rhone Valley. Of course, this does not happen in a snap of the fingers. During the first years, I had to learn the business day by day, with humility. In the early 2000s, I asked Patrick Hilaire to join me. We very quickly agreed on our vision of the field and the profession. With the desire to make beautiful wines, with the instinct that we had the possibility to make great wines for aging. In 2010, one morning, when we arrived at the Domaine, we understood that we had to start from scratch if we wanted to be totally in line with our ambitions: I therefore decided to rethink and rebuild the winery from scratch. It was quite a project! But the result is there, the tool is what we dreamed of. It allows us to concentrate on the essential: our wines.
What do I like best about my job? Being in touch with the elements is a necessity for me. I am first and foremost an Earthman. And being in the middle of the vineyards every morning brings me this privileged contact with nature... with its gifts and whims... My best memory? The first vintage, of course, is a very moving moment.
