Terroir & Vineyards

The nobility of an ancestral vineyard

Our vineyards spread over 26 hectares: 14 ha de of our vines are planted in the named area of “Cabrières” in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation area, giving us the grapes for the leading lights of our range; 7 ha is shared between the production of the grapes for our Côtes du Rhône Villages and our Côtes du Rhône; while 5 ha is the source of our Vin de Pays de Vaucluse.

In addition to the charm of our estate’s natural environment, it is also singularised by the nobility of its old vines. The oldest of them were planted between 1891 and 1920! Knotted and twisted, tempered by time, these “old ladies” continue to proudly bear their precious bunches of Grenache grapes, which are the emblematic variety of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and the “spirit” of our wines.
Alongside this majestic variety, prevalent on our estate, are 50-year-old Syrah vines and Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Counoise of the same age, combining to create our aromatic palette of black grape varieties. More discrete, a handful of Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Bourboulenc and Roussanne vines are the basis of the rare white Châteauneuf-du-Pape we craft.
