The Vineyard

The Vineyard

Nowdays, the winery extends over 37 hectares on Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

The largest parcel is located on Plateau de Mont Redon, on the Northern part of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The oldest coplanted vines, some predating World War I are located on lieu dits Bois Lauzon, Cabrières and Le Pied de Baud.

The vineyards is coplanted with Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Counoise, Cinsaut, Roussanne, Bourboulenc, Picpoul and Clairette. From rolled pebble to clay and limestone soils, these grappes and soil diversities enable Vincent and François to develop highly characteristic wines, reflecting the typical complexity and generosity of these terroirs.

Vincent and François progressed with the aim of extracting the best quality from the grape and preserving the distinctive character of the land.

These characteristics have brought well-structured wines reflecting, elegance and gentleness.

The winery also owns some vines along the appellations Côtes du Rhône Village Plan de Dieu, Côtes du Rhône and Ventoux. Among Plan de Dieu’s, some 6 hectares of old vines on the edge of the wood, sometimes centenarian vines, are used for the cuvée Henri Durieu, honouring its previous owner.

In 1986, Paul purchased a 7 hectares parcel of grenache and syrah, on the hill of Mormoiron, part of Ventoux’ appellation. This clay terroir is pretty interesting as it reveals both generosity and freshness, from its altitud and southern exposure.

All these vines and terroirs diversities offer a typical richness, ripeness and balance to their wines.

Bearing in mind the concern about preserving the terroir, the development is set in a substainable process of both vines and wines, in order to facilitate the finest expression of both fruit and terroir.
