Oiseau Rebelle


Grenache Noir/Grenache Gris

Wine Type





VDF, Roussillon








Super late harvested on 22nd November (with sugars indicating a potential alcohol of 26.5%!), destalked by hand, then foot trodden, then allowed to tick along, slowly fermenting in a stainless steel vat with no sulphur added whatsoever. One of the most exciting Sweet reds e have ever tasted.

Guido and Melanie explain the reasoning behind the name of this cuvée: "We’ve opted out of the Banyuls appellation and Cerbère is the name of the little village close to us and next to Banyuls. It’s also the name of the mythical dog with three heads that guards hell!".

Notes on the producer

Guido and Melanie Hube moved from Germany in 2014. Attracted by the terrific potential and quality of the terroir, they purchased 9ha of gnarled old vines on the precipitous, ancient, Precambrian schist-based hillsides scattered around Banyuls-sur-Mer on the Côte Vermeille.

Completely independent, quick to learn and working with a savage passion, they set about improving the condition of the vines, which had previously been treated conventionally, starting the process of organic conversion the following year. The grapes are meticulously sorted, destalked by hand, then crushed by bare foot and transferred into stainless steel vats for fermentation. No sulphur is used whatsoever for any wine, and bottling is carried out by gravity without any pumping. Attention to the tiniest detail continues with the use of small, dark glass bottles that have an extra coating of matt black paint applied to ensure no contamination from UV light, and high-quality natural corks tested to guarantee no TCA.
