Barely twenty years old, Emilie and Brice took on a serious, 27 ha project of abandoned vines in a place close to our hearts, the Gard (Languedoc-Roussillon) . In their first year, 2003, they had a vintage, and have been refining ever since -- slowing down, paring back, intervening less. They've cut down to 16 ha, and have converted all the vineyards to biodynamic agriculture. The wines are full of character, and have a lift and exuberance completely outside of what I've tasted from Costière de Nîmes. That may have something to do with the influence of their friend and collaborator, Eric Pfifferling of Domaine L'Anglore's fame. Good guy!
The grapes for the rose are harvested at full maturity by hand and sorted at the domaine. Everything is destemmed pressed. Fresh on the nose with forestry red berries: alpine strawberry, raspberry and a bit of white pepper on the finish. Juicy minerality and a slight salinity!
