Situated in Montpeyroux, Domaine d’Aupilhac was founded in 1989 in the producer’s family home. Its name reflects the part of the vines that grow on their south-west facing terraces, known as “Aupilhac”. They’re mainly Mourvèdre and Carignan, but some Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault grow there too. At an altitude of 350m (1150ft) where Syrah predominates (though you’ll also find Mourvèdre and Grenache) lies the north-west facing terrace, known as “Les Cocalières”. The most northerly facing part is planted with the four white grapes recognised by the Coteaux du Languedoc: Roussanne, Marsanne, white Grenache and Rolle (Vermentino). The land is ploughed regularly; this means the roots have to force their way deep into the cool sub-soil which protects the vines from seasonal drought. The land, or “terroir”, is treated with great respect; the priority being to maintain its natural balance. Domaine d’Aupilhac practices organic culture for the entire estate and is certificate by Ecocert.
