Our wines are the product of strict vineyard practices and judicious oenological work. To achieve low yields and concentrated fruit, we practice: rigorous pruning and trellising; green harvesting; manual picking at optimal maturity using small crates; careful selection of grapes. In the vinification and maturing cellars, consultant oenologist Claude Gros advises on the best methods to extract the aromas and flavours carefully nurtured in the vineyard. This involves: gentle pressing, temperature-controlled vinifications, gravity-fed operations, atmosphere-controlled cellar aging, and domain bottling.

Gris de Gris - A Corbières original! Elegant and aromatic - from five grape varieties including selected Grenache Gris (valued for it's small, concentrated berries).

Domaine Rouge - A hand-crafted expression of our Boutenac terroir - an authentic Fontsainte cru whose red fruit aromas to benefit from additional Syrah parcels in 2005.

La Demoiselle - "Made in Fontsainte" since 1973 from a single parcel that celebrated its 100th birthday in 2004 - old vines, low yields, very concentrated fruit.

Le Clos du Centurion - Born in 1999 from carefully selected vines from Fontsainte's best vineyard parcels - our new flagship wine with a strong image, signed Bruno Laboucarié.
