At 658 meters above sea level and 30 kilometers from the Mediterranean Sea, on the first foothills of the Cévennes and the Massif Central, the Pic Saint Loup is full of perfumes, pure essences of the most northern Languedoc appellations: oaks, garrigues, Pine, thyme, laurel, rosemary ... The fruits are born in the heart of varied soils, clay-limestone on marly subsoils, and forge their character in the course of contrasting seasons. In winter, land collects enough water to balance summers with moderate drought and marked thermal amplitudes between day and night. The demanding and contrasted lands of the Pic Saint Loup, the typicities of its soils and its climate, are all personality traits of our wines. The estate, the Bergerie du Capucin, extends over fifteen hectares, in the lands of Pic Saint Loup, in the communes of Lauret and Valflaunès. A few kilometers from the cellar and the cellar, the Bergerie du Capucin still exists: it reminds us every day of the memory of Jeanne, the grandmother of my son, whom I wish to honor. Because wine is also a family story, whose beauty and the bouquet of aromas content the values transmitted from generation to generation. To incarnate my first vintage, Jeanne, a shepherdess on the high plateaux of the Bergerie du Capucin, an elegant, beautiful and very lively woman, imposed herself, reminding me of the delicate and round notes of my wines and the dirt roads she used every day.
