Located in the heart of the AOP Faugères on the townlands of the same name, the Mas des Capitelles vineyard extends over 24 hectares of vines consisting essentially of the southern varieties : Carignan, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault.
They have been cultivated in thes chist hillsides of Languedoc for generations, in a unique terroir characterized by its southern exposure, its dry climate, altitude (250m), its slightly acid soils and its influence on the north wind.
Cultivated exclusively with organic and biodynamic methods, in the spirit of responsible agriculture and looking to the future.
Consisting largely of old Carignan and Mourvèdre varieties, our vineyards allow us to product of wines of outstanding quality that keep exceptionally well over time.
True to our conception of the wine must be, according to us, as natural as possible, we intervene as little as possible during its aging in order not to distort its aromas and its attachment to the terroir. That is why we do not intervene on the temperatures of our wines during vinification by heating or cooling the soft grapes. We also do not filter our wines and we sulphate them as little a possible during fermentation so they can age and become refined over time under the right conditions.
We attach great importance to the quality of harvesting, this is why the entire vineyard is sorted on the vine and harvested manually. Low yields between 20 and 30 ho / ha as well as traditional winemaking methods and carbonic maceration, allow us to produce wines with exceptional aging potential.
To ensure the correct balance, our wines are vatted for a minimum of one year to develop their typical characteristics and aromas. Our domain also gradually expands its aging cellars from year to year, its as evidenced by our Vielles Vignes, Loris and Collection vintages.
The concern for quality, the the winemaker’s touch, and a strict fermentation in cellars, are proof of the quality of the products sold on the domain.
