This domaine’s name means “the blood of the stones.”  Founded in 1975 the domaine has been solely owned by the wonderful Serge Fergioule, he of the huge handle bar moustache, since 1990. His management philosophy and techniques have helped to create vineyards that are bursting with vitality and biodiversity. Biodynamically certified since 2012, Serge produces grapes that are both expressive of their origins as well as having lower pH levels resulting in wines of power, complexity and freshness.

About This Wine...

“Clear light yellow, not overly yellow as expected. Excellent deep nose, mature sweet fruits – pineapple, peach, Jasmin on the palate, great complexity long taste – not sweet but full bodied and without the chardonnay butter. Pineapple, melon and sweet herbs on the finish.”

The result, unsurprisingly, is fantastically complex, with citric fruit to the fore, a mineral backdrop and hints of fennel, white pepper, bitter almond and papaya added for good measure.
