Dating back to the Cathares, this wine estate in the very capable hands of Luc Rouvière and his family, has created a full bodied red wine that is superb in bag in box, or in bottle, as well as a newer Rosé that also exhibits a similar finesse.
This very pretty domaine, is a short drive from Bize Minervois on the road to Minerve and Saint Pons. The property dates back to
Cathar and no doubt pre Roman times. It was once part of the lands of Fontfroide Abbey.
It comprises 26 hectares, with Vins de Pays d'Oc and AOC. The ground is clay and limestone and the vineyard grows the varieties of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Cinsault and Carignan.
