This family farm was bought in 2003 by Didier Labat with his wife and their two daughters. With the rights granted as young farmers, Didier planted, from 2003 to 2007, four hectares of noble grape varieties, 2 hectares of merlot, one of cabernet franc, one of cabernet sauvignon and some ares of white sauvignon and petit manseng. The vineyard soils are particularly suitable for these grape varieties, especially the slightly sandy clay-limestone. The vineyard, which is on a human scale, is a family estate as farmers like it, and is classified as a PGI (protected geographical identification), a local wine from the Agenais region.
Fell in when I was a kid. Indeed at the age of 4 years I confused the bottle with a bottle of wine left on the table! This old mill is at the end of a path where the wheels no longer turn, but the flow of water could remind us of their use. The mill is located in the middle of a green estate. You can smell daffodils in spring or late summer hay.
To be a winegrower is for me to accomplish all the tasks of the vine. From planting to selling the product, which is what I do because I have a vineyard on a human scale. From the beginning, I set up a quality approach and processes where the words traceability and guaranteed origin have their full meaning. I am counting on small yields that produce harvests concentrated in ripe fruit, worthy of the best AOC wines. We carry out manual harvesting with sorting on the vine, destemming as soon as we arrive in the cellar and vinification separated by grape variety.
You just have to taste them! These are peasant wines! But when I say peasants, I mean it in the frank sense of the word, that is to say that this wine does not make a fuss. These are wines that remind us of the good times spent with family or friends in the countryside around a beautiful meal where sharing and sympathy are essential.
