About this Wine

The complexity of this wine is mesmerising, highlighting the terroir completely and leaving one in a state of contemplation. It is very difficult to find words for this masterpiece, so we defer to Thomas’s description: "Beautiful depth already in the nose, cherries, red and black fruits, herbs and spices, a breath of tobacco A mineral background with a nose that repeats in the mouth - great aromatic and mineral complexity, juicy and well-structured in the mouth. Voluminous but very elegant at the same time (not heavy!), Deep and long." This wine is ready to drink but can be aged for decades with the right cellaring conditions.

Tasting notes

Thomas’s work in the vineyard is also fundamentally important. He works with specific parcels of vines, studying the variations of styles that each parcel creates as a Burgundian winemaker would do. From very early on in his career he has followed biodymamic principles, and has been certified by Biodyvin since the beginning. To anyone who thinks that Roussillon is all about high alcohol and over-ripe fruit flavours, the freshness, precision and finesse of Thomas’s wines - both reds and whites - will come as a revelation.
