A 100% Carignan cuvée, from century-old vines. The vineyard is worked by hand and crawler tractor, and no use of pesticides. Grown on schist and clay-limestone soils, and situated at the heart of the Hautes Corbières, at 200 metres altitude, in the communes of Villeneuve-les-Corbières, Durban and Cascastel. Grapes are harvested by hand, with little crates. Vinification without sulphur, fermentation at low temperatures with whole clusters, maturation in barrels. Neither fined nor filtered, and without sulphur added at bottling.
Maxime Magnon: simply put, it’s he who restored the image of the Corbières appellation. Burgundy-born, in his forties, he’s worked in Villeneuve-les-Corbières since 2002. But before that, Maxime studied and trained at length alongside many of the greats: Thierry Allemand, Thierry Valette, Selosse... At his estate of around 12 hectares, the environment is respected, chemicals are banned,...All wines
