Great grapes, so that the talent of the winemaker expresses itself ...
An exceptional ampelographic variety
We work 10 different grape varieties:
In white: Grenache, Viognier, Rolle, Roussanne and Chardonnay.
In red and rosé: syrah, grenache, cinsault, carignan and mourvèdre also called the plan of Saint-Gilles.
The number of grape varieties, combined with the multiplication of the number of parcels, the differences of soils and a parcel vinification, offers us a possibility of combinations of assemblages justifying the richness and the depth of our range of wines.
Our vines are on average 30 years old (more than 90 years for the oldest), and nearly 15 hectares are harvested by hand.

The oldest are grassed and plowed on the row only, to control yields.
The use of insecticides is prohibited by the "sexual confusion", the treatments of the vineyard are reduced to copper and sulfur in small doses: the Mistral is our ally ...
