Domaine Saint Hilaire:
The Domaine is tucked away a mile back from the main road that connects Molière's Pezenas and the water's edge at Mèze. Whether it's the oysters of Bouzigues, the long white beaches of Marseillan, Bézier's bull-fighting ring, Sète's seafood restaurants and panoramic views of the Mediterranean, or Montpellier's marbled Place de la Comedie for people-watching and shopping, there are plenty of lei...

The Domaine is tucked away a mile back from the main road that connects Molière's Pezenas and the water's edge at Mèze. Whether it's the oysters of Bouzigues, the long white beaches of Marseillan, Bézier's bull-fighting ring, Sète's seafood restaurants and panoramic views of the Mediterranean, or Montpellier's marbled Place de la Comedie for people-watching and shopping, there are plenty of leisure pursuits to be enjoyed within an hour of the Domaine. The buildings themselves comprise a Bastide, built in 1780, and an Art Deco wing added in 1934. To the North, the wooded park and a large vegetable garden provide the perfect cover for a shady afternoon walk, while there's always something wine-related going on in the winery buildings which surround the courtyard to the South. Here, depending on the season, you can watch the whole process as grapes from the surrounding vines are gathered, fermented, barrelled, bottled and, of course, sold, on site. If you're feeling active but don't want to leave the magical grounds of the Domaine, there's always a dip in the pool, with the possibility of joining us for an evening film shown on the projector in the extensive English library upstairs. Beyond the pool, park and gardens, the distinct parcels of grapes that are cultivated on the gentle ochre slopes are interspersed with islands of brushwood and the scented Mediterranean pine. These islands are home to a variety of wildlife and can resound to a dawn chorus of birds or an evening fanfare of cicadas and provide cover for that occasional and elusive delight of Obelix - the wild boar. The neighbours include other vignerons and tasting opportunities, a melon farmer and two brothers whose hot spring flows through ponds where extraordinary Silesian fish grow to an incredible size.

Binny's 1/31/2018. 2015 vintage shows no drop off, maybe even better.

Binny's 5/2016. Why oh why, did I give the second bottle of this sparkler to the neighbors as a Thanksgiving gift? Going for more Limoux sparklers on my next wine buying trip. Just very very tasty. Off to a great Thanksgiving day 2016. Purchased one more at Binny's, 12/2016 & again on 3/2017. Wonderful start to the 2017 Thanksgiving afternoon.
