Winemaker Notes: 

"A blend of Roussanne, Marsanne and Chardonnay from cult winemaker Laurent Vaillé. Vaillé trained under a who's who Europe's most-acclaimed winemakers--Jean-François Coche-Dury, Gérard Chave and Eloi Durrbach. He settled in l’Hérault in 1989, dyanamiting and bulldozing limestone, boulders and glacial scree to plant vineyards with cuttings of Syrah, Roussanne and Marsanne from Gérard Chave and Cabernet from Domaine Trévallon. The combination of exceptional vineyards and fruit makes for wines of power AND restraint. Do not miss this opportunity!" 

About the Producer: 

"Attaining cult wine status is not an easy feat, and certainly not when the odds are stacked against you. Laurent Vaillé has achieved what others thought impossible. Having spent his early career training under such masters as Jean-François Coche-Dury (Meursault), Gérard Chave (Hermitage), and Eloi Durrbach (Domaine Trévallon, Provence), he settled in the l’Hérault of the Languedoc and purchased his own land in 1989, near Aniane. 

In this area of the region, where the limestone is hard and abundant and the soil poor, no one thought he would ever have any success planting a vineyard on his plot of choice. Though it took dynamite and bulldozing to clear twice the amount of limestone, boulders, and glacial scree that is found in neighboring vineyards, he found a great terroir for his grapes. He did not have to look far to find ideal bud wood, either. He sourced his Syrah, Marsanne, and Roussane cuttings from Gérard Chave and his Cabernet from Domaine Trévallon. 

As for the skeptics, they are currently eating their words. His area of the Languedoc has since become known to produce some of the greatest wines in the region, with the new appellation of Terrasses du Larzac, of which he is technically part, reaping attention and praise. In his words, 'Nature gave us a partition of land. It is up to us to interpret it.'"
