A FEW VINES ACQUIRED IN 2008 AND THE STORY BEGAN...
In a mythical region, where for centuries man has worked with vine. A terroir, a climate and grape varieties of which I’ve always been passionate, will always be passionate and more...
In a typical soil of polished pebbles originating from the bed of the river Rhône, the vineyards which essentially contain Grenache and Syrah grape varieties are implanted in the single named vineyards Pignan and Bois Dauphin.

I also wished to enlarge this selection of wines with appellations which I consider to be among the most representative of the southern Rhône valley, allowing you to discover appellations more intimist or to revisit the unmissables of my region.

Each wine is elaborated with the same philosophy as the selection single vineyard Pignan, a pure Grenache, very precise and mineral. My wish is to share the passion that I have for this region across a quality selection that respects the typical expression of some of the most beautiful parcels of vines in the southern Rhône.

Reviews/Awards:

The stunning 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Lieu-Dit Pignan is rock-star stuff! Made from almost all Grenache, it possesses beautiful notes of blackberry, sweet black cherries, liquid violets and licorice. Deep, layered and also supple and heavenly textured, with remarkable purity and finesse, it’s a thrilling drink that can be enjoyed anytime over the coming decade or more.
