Background Winery

Frédéric Pourtalié and his father decided to create this estate in the hamlet of Montcalmès on the edge of the Massif Central, 30km north-west of Montpellier in 1998, a decade after neighbour Grange des Pères (with whom Frédéric trained, as well as chez Alain Graillot).

These days they produce only 4,000 cases from 22 hectares across four communes of the Terrasses de Larzac appellation - Puéchabon, Aniane, St Jean de Fos and St Saturnin de Lucian. Syrah and Grenache vines are planted on north-facing limestone soils, while the Mourvèdre faces south on pudding stones. The estate began a transition to organic farming in 2012 and the 2015 vintage will be certified as such.
