The 50 acre estate lies along the slopes of the Dentelles de Montmirail overlooking the Rhone Valley, at an altitude of 650 feet above sea level – the highest altitude for Vacqueyras vines. The vineyard is also naturally isolated into a single plot, making the location protected from the Mediterranean environment and ideally suited for organic viticulture.
Red clay limestone and famous galets roules impart a terrific intensity and depth to the Fruits Sauvage. The grapes undergo alcoholic fermentation in cement vats using indigenous yeasts. Towards November or December malolactic fermentation takes place naturally. The wine was then raised cement tanks for 18 months. The domaine works the soils organically, with no added herbicides or pesticides. Annually all vine clippings are ploughed back in between rows to enrich the soils. Yields are meticulously restricted.
