Product Description:

"Sourced from parcels on the Terrasses du Larzac above the villages of Puéchabon and Aniane. The mourvedre is from Domaine Tempier Bandol cuttings. Organically and manually farmed, including green harvesting. All grapes hand harvested, tranpsorted in baskets and destemmed.

Outside the charming medieval village of Puéchabon, just south of Pic St. Loup, the vineyards of Mas des Brousses are perched on the slopes above the Hérault River Valley where they meet the Cévennes Mountains in the newly created appellation within the Coteaux du Languedoc AOC, Terrasses du Larzac. Géraldine Combes’ family has worked this land since 1525. For the last 15 years, she has worked nine hectares with her husband, Xavier Peyraud—grandson of the iconic Domaine’s Tempier’s Lucien and Lulu Peyraud.

The young couple handle every aspect of viticulture and winemaking from vine to bottle. They work manually in the vineyards, have never used pesticides or herbicides, and view plowing as a vital part of their commitment to natural viticulture. The wines are bottled unfiltered to capture the intense fruit and garrigue aromas that the terroir has to offer. The wines have power and balance and their rusticity is coupled with finesse and elegance." -Importer
