AOC Languedoc

60% Grenache, 40% Syrah

This cuvée owes its name to this valley of Larzac where the 40 cows of the estate graze, where menhirs grow and where the boxwood takes on a reddish hue in the heat of summer.

13 year old Grenache vines planted by the winemaker’s grandfather at an altitude of 300m and now entering their prime production years. The vines are worked in a cordon de royat trellising (this is to restrict yields and encourage the concentration of flavour in the grapes).
The Syrah vines are 33 years old, planted at 350m, and are worked in a cup shaped fan trellis to allow for bunch spacing and full development of the grapes.

Tasting notes
This wine has a rich cherry colour to it, which also indicates what is found both on the nose and palate: nice acidity, red fruits (cherry, strawberry, and a light jamminess) backed by some spice and dried herbs. Les Renardières is an easy drinking wine and would pair well with roasted vegetables, a tagine, a stamppot, or even your weekly pizza night! – hand harvested and selected grapes.


Ferrussac Les Renardières 2019

Renaud Rossignol got his start in the vineyards of Domaine de Ferrussac from the age of 10. Wielding his grandfather’s secateurs from an early age, his childhood pleasure was to accompany him to the vineyard, tending to their Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Chenanson, and Censault vines growing at elevations varying from 350 to 600m. Seventeen years later he is now both head winemaker and ranch manager – also tending to a herd of 40 Aubrac cows – who also contribute to vineyard diversity as he works towards full organic and biodynamic certification (already in vineyard management practice today). Respect for the land, the cows, the vines, and the region (in La Vacquerie, on the Causse du Larzac: classified by Unesco as a World Heritage site in 2011) is reflected in his wine. There are five hectares currently under vine and the focus is very much on quality over quantity and on delivering wines that are representative of the region.  Only 4.500 bottles (25 hectoliters per hectare vs an average of 65-70 hl/ha in the IGP) are produced each year and always sell out. The Domaine de Ferrussac cellar is situated at 630m where ambient temperatures never exceed 22c and aid in the vinification process. The wines and this Ferrussac Les Renardières 2019 are fresh and rustic at the same time; well balanced and well-structured with aromas of fruit and regional garrigue that linger both in the glass and on the palate.
