Sylvain Fadat is one of the great winemakers of the Languedoc. Since taking over from his father in 1989, he has issued a string of wonderful expressive wines from his small domaine. Les Cocalières is a special cuvee, made from roughly equal proportions of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, grown on a terraced limestone vineyard. This is a wonderfully balanced wine with concentrated dark tarry fruits, showing some soft smooth maturity, nice length and a lovely freshness throughout. - John Wilson, Irish Times

The terroir:Situated at an altitude of 350 metres on hilly land facing north-west, the soil consists of fine grained colluvium soil with lacustrine deposits. It is on the site of an old lake formed after the eruption of a volcano whose crater is at the bottom of the Jouncas valley. The resulting soil is a geological phenomenon consisting of a mixture of limestone and basalt.



Viticulture: The grapes are picked three weeks later than those in the village. No effort is spared to make a great red wine which is at the same time balanced yet delicate. Long maceration with regular circulation of the lees in open vats. Maceration with lees circulation. The wine then matures for 15 months in vats and barrels.


Thanks to the altitude and exposure to the elements which slow the ripening of the grapes, this wine is beautifully fresh with aromas of red fruit, spice and all the wild plants of the garrigue.


Gastronomic soulmates: This wine's fruitiness combined with its softness and length make it an ideal aperitif drink but it would be equally delicious with partridge, duck or pigeon garnished with ceps or wild mushrooms - think duck breast with figs
