Four generations of traditions are put to practice on 13 hectares of vineyards (38 acres) that meet AB specifications.

Our estate, located in the South of France in the Roussillon plain near Perpignan, between snow-capped mountains and the Mediterranean sea is a part of the Aspres Terroir and offers spectacular views of the Pyrénées.

 

Our diverse selection of grape varieties, planted on blocks having different soil types, enables  us to provide red, white, and rosé as well as natural dessert wines. Currently our estate produces 35 000 bottles and has an overall potential of 50 000 bottles of organic quality wines:

 

  • Black Grenache and Syrah make up the red wines which have a fine ruby hue, are well-structured with complex aromas of berries and spice.

 

  • Marselan, a unique cross of Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon, has clusters with small berries that produce relatively little juice. This results in a red wine of almost opaque deep purple, an expressive, ripe and pure nose, with rich spice and dark red fruit on the palate. Every vintage we produce one bottle 100% Marselan, and one bottle a blend with Syrah “Olympe”.

 

  • The rosés from Black Grenache and Syrah are fruity and lively.

 

  • The whites, aromatic, delicate and fine, are made with small berry Muscat.

 

  • The renowed natural dessert wines of the region -the appellations VDN - include:Muscat de Rivesaltes,  made from Muscat small berry, and Rivesaltes Grenat, made from Black Grenache.

 

We are committed to incorporating technological progress with respect for the environment while creating our line of delightful wines.

A great bottle of wine embodies the personality of the winemaker in addition to the varietal character of the grape and the unique aspects of soil and climate.

It is a genuine pleasure for us to present our wines. We are passionate about our work and bringing our family estate to life through fine and elegant wines that offer outstanding value to our customers.
