Before settling in his home town, Laurent Pratx worked as an oenologue in the Rhône region. This domaine is a love story for the grape variety grenache. The grenache, famous thanks to some appellations such as Chateauneuf-du-Pape, is able to express the strenght of the South, while remaining refined, fruity and elegant.
Located in Maury and the Agly Valley, on soils made of shists, which are a perfect match for grenache. The vineyard (around 6 hectares) is split into different plots around Maury. They cultivate black grenache, in the most respectful conditions possible, almost entirely by hand. The elders had planted Carignan, Macabeu and Grenache Gris. The yields are low, not more than 5 to 6 small grapes per vine, producing a must fit for a long maceration that allows to extract both strength and finesse.
