We were exploring the Languedoc during the holidays, Matthieu’s family had bought a large house in an isolated hamlet in the north of Saint-Chinian in the 1960s/70s. Looking for a large area but firmly dissuaded by our bank manager from such a project (we were a little young to gain his trust), we bought our first land, with old vines and neglected terroirs.
With the financial resources of the time, the vineyard was restored and 12 ha were planted. The grapes were taken to the village’s cave cooperative until 1987. First vintage : 1988 Using an eco-friendly approach, our work as winemakers, both with the vines and in the cellars, tends to focus on the complexity and finesse of our wines. Matthieu, with his team, supervises the work in the vineyards. Isabelle manages the cellars and the sales.
“The estate is situated on limestone hills, 2 km from Saint-Chinian in the direction of Villespassans.”
