Benoit Danjou and his brother Sebastien inherited from their grandfather this old vineyard which was used for the production of Rivesaltes in a beautiful part of the Roussillon called 'Espira de L'Agly'. Today, they manage around fifteen hectares of parceled vines, aged 15 to 120 years farmed organically and biodynamically.
They have a lot of endemic grape varieties, including some rare old vines of carignan, are rooted in a soil of clay, black schists, and limestone rocks, and are now vinified into dry whites and reds that aim to capture the true expression of the landscape.
This Grenache, Mourvedre blend is a juicy, balanced and concentrated wine. Aged in oak barrels for 12 months, ideal red for the upcoming warm month, to be enjoyed on your next barbecue.
Soon we will upload some of the brother's more premium cuvees too ! Keep an eye out for those.
