The estate is situated in the south of the “Appellation” and covers 14.5 hectares (36 acres) of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The sun, Mistral wind and a soil composed by rounded pebbles (typic of the “Appellation”) contribute to create delicate and rich wines in harmony.
The vineyard consists of several distinct parcels: Pied Redon, La Combe, Palestor, Les Relagnes, Le Boucou and Les Coulets, including 4 hectares (10 acres) around the property. The grape varieties used for reds are as follows: Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Muscardin and Mourvèdre. For the white: white Grenache, Roussane and Clairette. The average age of the vines is 40 years old. In the past we have used environment friendly procedures. Now that we have more respect for the environment, we are becoming an organic winery.
Our domain is now HVE certified since December 2020.
"High Environmental Value" is level 3 of excellence for the "Environmental Certification of Agricultural Operations" system and is concerned with biodiversity. It is based on environmental performance indicators that cover the entire operation. Certification makes it possible to certify that the elements of biodiversity (hedges, grass strips, trees, etc.) are very extensive on the farm and that the pressure of agricultural practices on the environment (air, climate, water, soil, biodiversity, landscapes) is reduced to a minimum. The aim of the HVE approach is to meet the needs of consumers in their search for healthier and quality products. It also meets the expectations of citizens asking for environmentally friendly practices. It is oriented around 4 themes:
- The phytosanitary strategy in the vines- The preservation of the surrounding biodiversity- Fertilizer management- Water resource management
