Close to the medieval city of Carcassonne, the organic farming estate, located at the foot of the Laure-Minervois hills in the Languedoc region, covers more than 15 hectares, 5 hectares with the Minervois Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) and 10 hectares with the Protected Geographical Indication (PGI).Surrounded by scrubland and pine forests, the vines are grown on the clayey-limestone soils of Minervoi in organic farming, where the Viognier, Chardonnay, Syrah, Grenache and Carignan varieties are grown.
December 2015: Barbara and Pierre leave their native Alsace with a touch of madness and create Domaine SIBILLE in Laure-Minervois in the Aude, in the Occitania Region. On the basis of a small organic farming estate at the foot of the Black Mountains, we take over and work a little more than 15 hectares of vines: 5.2 hectares in the Minervois Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) and 10 hectares in the Protected Geographical Indication (PGI). It is a real challenge to succeed in the alchemy between the vine and our vintages, for this we rely on the experience of Pierre, an experienced oenologist with more than twenty years of winemaking in his hands. The soil is essentially a sandstone soil, which gives freshness and structure to the wines. Only Viognier and Chardonnay Pays d'Oc (in conversion) are grown on clay and limestone soils, and the vineyard is made up of several grape varieties: Red and Rosé: Grenache for its power, old Carignans for its authenticity, Syrah for its finesse, Mourvèdre for its wild character, Merlot for its roundness, Marselan for its originality and discovery, White: Viognier and Roussanne for its fruit, Chardonnay for its freshness. We prefer manual harvesting over reds, gravity work, reduction of sulphites and white maturing on total lees to naturally give fat and depth to our wines. Our packaging is intended to be different and colourful; once assembled, they form a fresco on the six bottles: they express our link to the terroir!
Our philosophy is to make the estate a place of exchange and sharing, during the renovation work we have set up a cottage for 4 people, an air of camper van for our friends travellers so that they can enjoy the landscapes of character of the Minervois.
