Several generations of Jérôme Bressy’s family had cultivated vines here but sold their grapes to the local co-operative. In 1989, Jérôme’s father Yves made a life-changing step, converting his vineyard holdings to organic farming - a massive investment given that he would continue selling to the co-op, with no premium. His extraordinary prescience delivered a healthy, balanced vineyard to Jérôme, the first member of this family of viticulturists to study winemaking.

A blend of 50% Grenache and the balance varying quantities of Mourvedre, Carignan, Counoise, Vaccarese, Cinsault, Syrah, Terret Noir.

Fermented with partial whole cluster and matured for 36 months in demi-muids, barrels and concrete vats.
