What experts say  
  Coup de coeur "Beautiful flavours of violet and black fruit on nose and palate for this subtle cuvée, with fine tannins and a very expressive finish. Fresh and very well made (Partly matured with old oak vats), it is a supple wine with a nice personality." (2013 vintage)  
  Commended at Decanter World Wine Awards 2014 "Intense black olive and game aromas with mint and garrigue. Ripe, tannic and meaty palate. Lots of flavor." (2012 Vintage)  
 Rosemary George MW - Taste Languedoc Blog 
"Mourvèdre is the main variety, with Syrah and Grenache. One third of the wine goes into seven year old barrels. It is sturdier than the Joia, with a hint of wood, with quite firm fruit, but again with the same elegance. Nicely crafted." (2013 vintage)

"Jòia" means joy in Occitan, the local dialect and everything is in that name: it is a light, crispy and fruity red wine to drink over a meal with friends. Not pretentious, just a lot of joy in the bottle! Yummy flavours of red fruit will fill your nose and palate, followed by a minty touch that gives a really fresh finish. This bottle can go with many...

"Òbra" (Chef d'oeuvre) is the high-end cuvée of the domain - and it blew us away. Made from very tiny yield (15 hectolitres per hectares, which is not a lot), it is a powerful, tannic yet very elegant wine. It exhibits multiple flavours of red fruit, prune, cherry, Provence herbs and spices. Incredibly complex with a very, very long velvety finish. Top...

"Alba" (Dawn) was the first white wine experiment of the domain, and it is not a classic white Languedoc. Made from young Grenache Gris vines, it exhibits explosive aromas of lemon, exotic fruit and quince jam. A powerful minerality brings in freshness and finesse, with a long and buttery finish. We absolutely love unusual wines showing such a personality!

"Canta" (Song) is the incredible wine we are mentioning in the domain presentation. Please, forget everything you know about Riesling. This does not taste like classic Riesling, or like anything else actually. Coming from young vines planted on a very steep slope, it shows subtle and complex aromas of lemon, pear and passion fruit. A truly beautiful...

This cuvée Nèbla is an interesting Rosé wine to have with Asian food, having a bit more character than a Provence rosé. It's nice, fresh, and fruity, boasting notes of citrus, raspberry and a hint of litchee. The finish is long and fruity, definitely a rosé for an aperitif with smoked salmon on toast or during a meal with Thai food.
