Organic. We don’t work a lot with the wines of France's le midi so you can be sure that when we do, we have good reason. Here, the reason begins with the talented Brunnhilde Claux (ex-Domaine Gauby and Terroir al Límit) and the stunning vineyards of Domaine de Courbissac, which are carved into the limestone terraces and plateaus of the Minervois high country.
Claux is particularly passionate about the local Cinsault grape. It’s rare to find a 100% Cinsault wine, yet, when it’s done right—if yields are kept low and the soil is poor enough—this Languedoc variety can produce a beautiful and moving wine. This particular vineyard is set on rocky white clay and limestone soils, roughly 12 kilometres uphill from the winery. At 300 metres altitude, Les Farradjales is braced by the chilly Les Cers breezes running off La Montagne Noire. Claux’s 70-year-old vines are full of the disease Esca, so they yield at paltry levels. Consequently, this is her most limited cuvée, and it’s also her most floral, perfumed and delicate wine.
