|AOC Terrasses du Larzac
|Syrah - Grenache - Mourvèdre
Les Hauts de Perry benefits from a Jurassic limestone, resulting in an aromatic wine close to Rhône Valley’s Syrah and Grenache. Notes of violet, roses, pepper, and subtle leathery texture with a fresh finish.
The harvesting by hand is followed by destemming before a 30-35 days of fermentation. Extended maturation for about two years in terra cotta pots, no filtration, nor refined, before bottling on a fruit day with a waning moon.
About the domaine:
Frédéric Porro was an aspiring Motorcross rider until an accident left him in a wheelchair. His disability led him to a new passion – wine – after his sister asked him to put together the wine list for he restaurant. From that moment on, he became devoted to the grape. Mas des Agrunelles came about from his collaboration with Stéphanie Ponson – owner of Mas Nicot – in 2005 near Murles in Languedoc.
Stéphanie et Frédéric met in 1999 while studying enology in Montpellier. The name of the estate comes from the fact that there are a lot of wild sloe trees around the vineyards and sloe is ‘Agrunelles’ in old occitan. The couple make wine with the same diligance and passion as other biodynamic winemakers have before them, such as Didier Barral and Olivier Julien. It all began with experimentation, trial and error- but they quickly moved from organic vines to a fully functioning biodynamique vineyard and winery. They are proud to produce natural wines of high quality.
