Producer: Domaine Ribiera
Grape variety: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay
Southern identity in finesse. With this vintage, the Pichons have given us a wine full of character and enormous drinkability. The aromas are closer to a Roussanne with great richness, notes of very ripe citrus fruits and surprising fullness. At the top, and still very digestible.
Vinification without added sulphites, just a bit at the bottling (<20mg/L).
Domain Ribiera: 7 ha of vines in the heart of Languedoc in Aspiran managed by Christine and Régis Pichon.
“Wise in our follies, rich in our pleasures, let us trample the earth and its vain grandeurs underfoot. And in the sweet intoxication that such beautiful moments cause to flow into our souls.” We see the vine as a revealing link capable of expressing the identity and purity of its soil and environment.
The vines aged 20 to 50 years are located at an altitude of 110 meters and planted on marl (clay-sandy limestone soil) and rolled pebbles. Our plots are called Combe Caude, Lussides, Lous Aspes, Le Causse, Mas de Noyer, Boussac. We have chosen to cultivate traditional grape varieties. Cinsault for its tasty texture and delicate aromas, Grenache Noir for its sunny and fleshy side and Terret for its freshness and minerality. (Terret white and gray introduced into Languedoc around 1860)
Management of the vineyard in agroecology (organic agriculture certified by ecocert but also care and search for harmony with the environment). Plowed soils with compost: marc and Larzac manure. Treatments: wind, powdered sulfur, silica, aloe vera, low dose Bordeaux mixture, nettle or comfrey manure, etc.
