Vineyard Notes
The century-old vineyards of La Voûte du Verdus are situated in the Terrasses du Larzac, considered one of the finest appellations in the Languedoc, and the municipalities of Aniane and Saint-Jean-de-Fos. The vines grow on southeast-facing hills in soils of clay and limestone. Cooling winds from the Black Mountains keep the grapes from ripening too quickly. The longer grapes sit on the vine, the more complex the flavors. Complexity equals delicious!
Production Notes
The grapes are hand-harvested then aged on fine lees until February to preserve the aromatic expression and finesse. Temperature-controlled vinification occurs in stainless steel vats.
Winemaker Notes
This is a family-owned domaine that has been operating for over 100 years in the medieval town of St. Guilhem le Desert, an ancient commune officially designated as one of the Plus Beaux Villages de France. La Voûte du Verdus (“Vault of the Verdus River”) is so named because the cave in which the Bonnet family makes the wine sits atop the Verdus River flowing underneath. This award-winning winery maintains 20 hectares of vines from local grapes such as Syrah, Grenache Noir, Carignan, Mourvèdre, Grenache Blanc and Colombard.
