Aromas of violet, thyme, blueberry, and cherry infuse this organic, biodynamic beauty.  The mouth is silky and fine but firm, with a long, luscious finish. Savor this medium-bodied blend of Syrah, Grenache Noir, and Cinsault, shaped by the extraordinary terroir of Terrasses Du Larzac.

For a meal nonpareil, pair Hissez-O with white truffle ravioli.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The winemakers practice organic and biodynamic viticulture. In keeping with biodynamic practices, the winemakers refrain from interventions whenever possible. When needed, they spray solutions of horn manure, silica, nettle and horsetail infusions in place of chemicals. The vineyards are 1,312 feet above sea level and strongly influenced by the winds of the Plateau du Larzac which blow from the north 250 days out of the year. The soil is stony, clay and calcareous.
Production Notes
The domaine considers Hissez-O the pinnacle of production as the grapes are sourced from the highest-altitude, lowest-yielding parcel. The grapes are aged in French oak barrels for 22 months. Indigenous yeast is used with 30 days of maceration. Vinification is traditional with no additives and moderate use of sulfites.
Winemaker Notes
Domaine de La Réserve d'O was founded in 2005 by the husband and wife team of Marie and Frederic Chauffray. Marie searched for 10 years before finding her perfect vineyards, overlooking the Herault Valley in the prized Terrasses du Larzac appellation in the Languedoc. Today, on this windswept limestone ridge, Marie and Frederic produce organic, biodynamic wines, with minimal interventions. Their wines express the essence of this extraordinary terroir.
Food Pairing Notes
For a meal nonpareil, pair Hissez-O with white truffle ravioli.
Other Notes
Ageability: Drink now or keep until 2028. The name “La Réserve d'O,” reflects the domaine’s desire to create a nature reserve with vineyards that are part of a rich ecosystem of fauna and flora.
