Grape varieties

Grenache Noir, Pinot Noir

Barrel ageing






The grapes are harvested at night or in the small hours of the morning to ensure that they remain as cool as possible to retain all their precious aromas. After de-stemming they are gently pressed in a pneumatic press.

Each grape variety is handled separately. Alcoholic fermentation lasts a minimum of 2 weeks at around 16°, and the final blending takes place in December.

Food & Wine Pairings

This Pinot Noir, a fairly rare grape in the Languedoc and even rarer as a rosé, is refined and vivacious with its notes of peony and black cherry, and gives a fine structure to the wine. The Grenache, more opulent, brings a softer note to the overall aromatic complexity with its nuances of small red fruits (redcurrant, raspberry).

Food and wine pairing: aperitif, with meat or fish starters, and with grilled meats.

IGP Pays d'Oc

Grown between the Mediterranean and the mountains, IGP Pays d’Oc varietal wines cover an extensive sun-kissed area from the Camargue to the Vermillion Coast, in the heart of France’s largest wine region which is also renowned for its appellation wines.  

Its climate promotes healthy vines. The IGP Pays d’Oc production area covers the length and breadth of Languedoc-Roussillon:

  • France’s third most sunny region
  • Home to garrigue moorland, pine forests, olive groves, lush meadows, oaks and strawberry trees
  • Promoting synergy with nature
  • Buffeted by 4 regional winds
  • Boasting good soil and weather conditions

Pays d’Oc is such an extensive wine region that it is naturally home to an extraordinary range of soil types, that can vary from sandy terrain along the coast to limestone, schist, clay or stony gravel on the valley floors and hillsides.
