Our estate consists of 7 parcels, which constitute 3.75 Ha. Our plots evolve on soils of different compositions with dominant clay-limestone soils. At Clos des pères we work with Vieux Grenache noir, Grenache gris, Cinsault, Carignan and Syrah. Biodynamics is at the heart of our daily work.
The respect for the soil and the vine pushes us to work most often with our arms to avoid the settling of the soil. We carry out manual harvesting entirely in crates to keep the grapes intact until the vatting.
The vinification is carried out in vats, thus allowing a gentle and slow extraction of the aromas. The ageing is then carefully adapted to the vintage and grape variety in order to accompany the wine in a slow maturation. This maturation is done in vats or barrels of several wines with a capacity ranging from 228 to 500 litres.
The winter period is the time when everything comes down: the sap in the vines, but also the lees in our barrels! Then comes Spring, and the birth of the leaves and the first grapes. Summer is the time to structure the new vintage. Finally comes the time of Autumn. The moment of effervescence in the vineyards. This is the expectation of optimal maturity for our wines. Fermentation is carried out entirely naturally using indigenous yeasts and without any inputs. Depending on the vintage, with a little sulphite at the start for some vintages.
Cultivated by hand with respect for the soil and nature, we want to keep the soil alive to reveal the best of our vines. And a lot of passion to create a wine in our image: a grandfather, a father and a meeting between a graphic designer and a winegrower.
