An exceptional heritage

A unique estate, in the heart of Provence

Our Terroir

Situated at the feet of majestic « Dentelles de Montmirail » the picturesque village of Vacqueyras is a favored place where the various meridional vines, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault, white Grenache and Clairette grow. The wines were given the rank of “Cru” of the Cotes du Rhone wine s thanks to the impetus of quality development in the vines since the XV century.

    Today, the strict production rules are perpetuated :

  • A poor argillaceous, limestone soil mixed with round stones.
  • Vine types of quality.
  • mediterranean climate suited to the optimal maturity of grapes.
  • Limited yield (35 hl/ha) which allows the making of concentrated aromatics and strong wines.

We are established at the heart of these exceptional lands since 1717.For almost 3 centuries we have been making and maturing wines in our caves which are dug into the old walls of the town. We continue to work in the great tradition of our ancestors.

Our Winery

The family property of 40 hectares extends over the plateau of the Garrigues... Plateau located to the west of the appellation, resulting from a geological fracture, it extends to Chateauneuf du Pape... Essentially constituted by clay - red limestone soils with rolled pebbles...

Its great particularity lies in its rolled pebbles, which release the heat stored during the day, thus allowing the grapes to ripen optimally... These soils are favourable to low yields of grapes with a high concentration of tannins and aromas...
