Varietal: cinsault, syrah, grenache, carignan
Le Petit Domaine was born in 2012 by acquiring two small batches of different parcels just outside the village of Montpeyroux located in the Hérault valley. One batch of 2 hectares is planted on deep soils with vines between 20 and 50 years old : Syrah, Carignan and Chenin Blanc. These parcels, saved in extremis from grubbing up because they had been abandoned a few years earlier, require special attention.
The second batch of 2 hectares is a mix of soil types and vines ; Mourvèdre on red clay, Grenache & Carignan on yellow clay and Cinsault on pebbly limestone. For us, Aurélien's wines encapsulate the climate and terroir of the Hérault.
