Our 16 hectare vineyard is divided into about twenty parcels with complex and varied terroirs: at the foot of the rocky bars we plant the Mourvèdre on a terrace. The soil is ochre-red and the slopes are clayey-limestone. It is on the plateaus with stony soils that Syrah, Grenache and Carigan flourish.

Our 16 hectare vineyard is divided into about twenty parcels with complex and varied terroirs: at the foot of the rocky bars we plant the Mourvèdre on a terrace. The soil is ochre-red and the slopes are clayey-limestone. It is on the plateaus with stony soils that Syrah, Grenache and Carigan flourish. On the other hand, different soils coexist in the valley. It is on the multicoloured marl of the Triassic that we plant Cabernet Franc in the deepest soils. They bring freshness to the wine.
Attracted at a very young age by the expanse of scrubland and vines around Saint-Chinian, we began to build our vineyard. The grapes, first brought to the cooperative cellar, are gradually vinified from 1988 onwards, a
long history that is now written with our 16 hectares interspersed with scrubland, pine forests and olive trees, hung on the slopes of a small valley or exposed to the sun and the winds of a limestone plateau
We put all our energy into ensuring that our vines are organically grown: we enrich our soils with green manures and compost. We control our yields as well as the quality of the harvest by winter pruning. Our harvests are manual. In order to ensure the highest quality of our wines, we age them with indigenous yeasts and a minimum of sulphur. Our semi-buried cellar - built in 1995 - allows us to produce our Causse du Bousquet and Clos de la Simonette wines at a constant temperature.
When we decided to settle in Languedoc to produce our wines there, it was a real challenge that we had to take up... Our banker at the time strongly discouraged us from embarking on this project. Today, we can consider it a successful bet and it is with a touch of emotion that we bottle our wine every year!
