We have moved towards quality and authenticity with the removal of non-local grape varieties (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon) and the re-planting of indigenous varieties such as Terret-Bourret for example. Unlike the previous owners, we make everything on site, from the vine to the label. Since 2009, we are in Organic Agriculture and the vinification is made in a traditional way (indigenous yeasts). The harvest is done by hand in crates, followed by a sorting on the table - always by hand! Our philosophy is to combine "the traditional with the modern" by producing wines for pleasure and above all for sharing. The estate has two very distinct terroirs. The first one of 20 hectares in IGP d'Oc all around the estate, benefiting from a clay and sandy soil, with a particular climate. The second, of 12 hectares in AOP Languedoc, is situated in a magnificent micro-climate in one of the most beautiful terroirs of the Languedoc, a stone's throw from the village of Aniane. This pretty, single-slope plot is made up entirely of old vines - 50 to 80 years old - on clay-limestone soil, revealing sublime grapes at the arrival of the harvest.
Since 1781, the passion for vine and wine has driven the estate's successive owners. The first owners created a park which is now classified as a "Remarkable Garden". Our predecessors undertook colossal works for the time by changing the course of the Dourbie river in order to be able to plant vines all around the buildings. Since 2003, we have been striving to produce quality wines with traditional and organic vinification.
With the passing of the seasons and the harvest, our passion for wine remains the same. We hope one day to become one of the great Languedoc wines. The notion of sharing and passing on our know-how is very important to us, and we will be happy to welcome you every day to our estate. I can still see us in 2003 during our first harvest, we were not quite ready, we had received the stainless steel tanks barely two days before the beginning. I let you imagine the panic but also the excitement that reigned then... Since then, I reassure you that we are much more organized and we don't let ourselves be caught off guard!
