Totalling 21 hectares, our vineyards are set out in 32 different parcels spread across three diverse regions in the Languedoc-Roussillon. Within these regions there is a multitude of differing terroirs.

In the Corbières Maritimes we have seven hectares, on high alkaline soils of heavy clay and limestone. Here our parcels of Mourvèdre border shallow salt-rich étangs between the villages of Peyriac-de-Mer and Bages. These vines, along with Carignan planted in 1905, form the core of Mire La Mer.

In the Hautes Corbières, near the village of Villesèque-des-Corbières, a walled 1.5 hectare hilltop plateau is the home of our Prioundo. Cinsault and Grenache Noir sit adjacent on stony free-draining clay and limestone soil. Yield restriction and low incidence of disease enable us to achieve high levels of ripeness, allowing us to realise a terroir that expresses balance, purity and elegance.

In the Vallée de l’Agly, Roussillon, we have 10 hectares. At Mas de las Fredas, a 2 hectare parcel of Lledoner Pelut and Syrah clings to a steep north-facing slope, with high acid soils of schistose marls. This is where the L’Extrême rouge comes from. On the same hillside, Grenache Gris is in a 1 hectare, 1895 planting, on a north-east facing slope, makes L’Extrême blanc. Without nurture, these low yielding vines on slow ripening aspects produce wines of intensity and acid retention. Other scattered parcels of Grenache Noir and Gris, Carignan, Macabeu and Muscat, on varying soil and subsoil types, make up L’Année blends, and provide scope for our own experimentation and development in this region of great potential.
