Family estate since the 18th century, our vineyard of 57 acres is parcelled out on 6 villages.
The 16 acres of Gigondas vines are located on 3 different soils: the main parcel is situated on steep mountainsides from the south side of the “Dentelles de Montmirail”, the two others are on the heights of the village and on the middle alluvial terraces.
The vines are over 40 years old on average, but some parcels have been planted for 60 years: the production by hectare is therefore low, which favours the quality of our wines. The grenache variety prevails, complemented with mourvèdre and syrah.
The hand-made grape harvest allows us a strict selection of the grapes, which are then destalked and slightly crushed. The traditional winemaking takes place in enamelled concrete tanks. The fermentation on the skins varies from 2 to 3 weeks, depending on the varieties and on the vintage. Our main cuvée matures afterwards in tanks, while our Gigondas “Costevieille” ages in French oak barrels of 228 litres.
