A 100% Cinsault cuvée, made from very old vines, worked by hand and caterpillar tractor, no use of pesticides. The vineyards are situated at the heart of the Hautes Corbières at 200 metres altitude, spread over the communes of Villeneuve-les-Corbières, Durban and Cascaste. The estate covers schist and clay-limestone soils. Grapes are hand-harvested with small crates. Vinification without sulphur, low temperature fermentation of whole grape bunches, and maturation in barrels. Neither fined, not filtered, and with no sulphur 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
