The païssels is the traditional name of the chestnut stakes who support the young vines in Occitan. Marie and Vivien, oenological agronomists, who studied from Australia to California, also acquired the French specificities by having vinified in Alsace, Champagne or Corsica. An immense experience that made them prefer Languedoc and its terroirs of schist and character.Lire plus Learn more
Old vines cut into goblets on schist slopes.
"After having vinified in several vineyards in France and elsewhere, we settled in 2011 in the Saint-Chinian region where Vivien is from. We started to cultivate some old vines on the schist slopes and reopened the family cellar that had been closed for more than 15 years. Today the vineyard has 4 ha of old vines of Carignan, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache. We are gradually expanding this young estate by looking for the best plots of this exceptional terroir."
"The vineyard is located on schist slopes that give our wines a strong identity. The old vines rooted in depth offer fleshy wines, balanced with silky tannins. We are committed to respecting and caring for the environment and have been placing hives around our vineyards for several years."
"All the vines of the estate are pruned in gobelet, the traditional pruning of Languedoc. Each vine stock is supported by a chestnut tree tutor called païssel in Occitan. All our harvests are carried out by hand with the help of our family and friends. We take care of the vines as well as the winemaking and winemaking."
