The Domaine is Barville homestead Laurent Brotte. 15ha vineyard west of the village, it consists of seven parcels covering two of the oldest and best terroirs of the AOC (red clay and pebbles at a place called "Pradel" and broken limestone instead-said "Beaurenard"). At an altitude of 100 meters, the vines 35 years of age on average overlooking the Rhone and enjoy the health benefits and the mistral and a good exposure to the critical maturity of the berries.


Vinegrowing, budding, leafing, green pruning. Manual harvesting and rapid transport of the grapes in small containers to avoid compaction and oxidation of the grape. Destemmed, crushed and fermented at 28 °C followed by maceration for 3 weeks. Load shedding per day during fermentation. Ageing 12 months of syrah, grenache and tannic mourvedres in French oak barrels (1/3 new, 1/3 wine, 1/3 two wines), and more supple and fruity grenache tank and traditional lightning for 12 months.
