The vineyard covers a single area of 140 acres, around 123 acres of which are currently in production. Some plots have just been replanted and are still too young to produce appellation wines, and 10 acres)of old vines have been removed. These will be replanted after five to six years lying fallow. This is necessary to eliminate viruses, as we do not use chemical disinfection. The vineyards are cultivated organically under "Qualité France" supervision. No insecticides or herbicides are used. Copper and sulphur contents are limited. The soil is worked by tilling and enriched by applying manure of organic origin. The main grape varieties are Grenache, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvèdre, and Cinsault for the reds and rosés, and Semillon, Clairette, Rolle, and Roussanne for the whites. All harvesting is done by hand. Read less

Red Wines/ This is a robust, dense wine, showing the hot character of the vintage in its aromas and flavors of fruitcake and spice and slightly rough texture. It’s a blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Cabernet, matured in one-third new oak.

Tasting Highlights: Outstanding full-bodied reds from some of southern France’s top producers and the latest rosés from Provence/ Powerful tannins, with concentrated dark chocolate, roasted plum and meaty notes. Finish with peppers, mocha, and hints of cream.

La Stele Rouge 2009 - 91 points, Wine Enthusiast/ This wine is still youthful, but solidly structured, dense and concentrated. It’s dry in style but laden with fruits that have only begun to show through. Give this impressive wine several more years in the cellar.

/ La Stele is exceptional: a supple, complex blend, that is medium rich, well-balanced, and very long on the finish, tasting of toasted oak,cedar, blackberry and caramel.
