More info

The Terrasses du Larzac appellation is located in the north of the Hérault département, its vines planted on the slopes of the famous Causse du Larzac. The unique micro-climate of this area includes significant temperature variations: the distance from the sea and proximity to the Causse helps cool the air after warm summer days, helping the grapes develop a rich colour as they mature slowly and gradually.

The harvest began with an analysis of the grape's polyphenol content and daily tasting as they reached peak maturity. The grapes were carefully picked by hand and carried to the winery in special grape bins, within an hour of leaving the vine. The grapes were meticulously sorted and destemmed before being transferred to thermo-regulated vats. Each grape variety was vinified separately. Maceration lasted for approximately 20 to 25 days. At the end of the winter the wines were transferred to new 225 litre oak barrels and left to mature for 12 to 16 months.
