Clos Du Rouge George



Wine Type





Cotes Catalnes IGP, Rousillon








Cyril’s 'young' vines are 25yo, planted in thin soils developed over upturned schist. Vinified in 500ltr wooden cuve for three months, and then aged in stainless steel for eight months, to capture the fruit and freshness. Juicy and fresh and a million miles from the heavy styles Grenache of the region can produce.

Notes on the Producer

Cyril bought 5ha of old vineyards in 2002 (since when he has gradually added another 2.5ha). Right from the outset he chose to work outside the Roussillon-Villages appellation, as he believes that rules such as prescribing a minimum 30% syrah and/or mourvèdre make for wines that are contrary to the tradition, soil and climate of Roussillon. Hence why the wines are labelled as Cotes Catalanes IGP. 

Since he took over, Cyril has searched for a natural balance in the vineyard to help give finer and more complex expressions in his wines. To avoid soil compaction he uses no tractors, just a motorized hand-held cultivator and a horse to help with ploughing. He also sows Legumes between the rows of vines, rolling them and folding them back in the summer so that they act as a reserve of humidity, helping each vine to suffer less from the heat and keep enough freshness in its grapes, which is crucial as the village of Latour-de-France is known to have the driest non-irrigated vineyard in the world (an average of just 250mm of rain a year.)
