Ventoux La Barre 2017 and Beaumes de Venise Les Hauts 2017 just bottled !
Created in 2014, Domaine de Piéblanc is located on the northern hills of Caromb close to Mont Ventoux. Reaching an altitude of 300 meters, our 7 hectares of vines in AOC Ventoux are protected with oaks, pines and hundreds of olive trees. In addition, we owe 15 hectares of terraced vineyard on an unique terroir called Terres du Trias near the village of Suzette in AOC Beaumes de Venise. Our vineyard is naturally farmed, without pesticides or herbicides (organic conversion).
Highlight the grape varieties
Our project is to create a vineyard with singular wines from our beautiful region by enhance the local grape varieties: mostly Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault (for a quarter) and a pinch of Carignan.
Each plot is farmed with respect of its own specifications (quality of the soil, grape variety, age of the vines.
A soil mosaic
Four different kinds of soils characterize our vineyard. The variations are found not only between the islet but between the plots as well. They are all composed of sediment (loamy and sand-clay soils): river alluvion of high terraces, conglomerate of Crillon-le-Brave and recent colluvion of Quaternaire.

Climate and vineyard
The winter was mild and dry in the Southern Rhône. Despite a raining spring the 2018 vintage enjoyed good wheather conditions. The rain brought Mildiou on some parcels of our vineyard but also enables to have water supply for few months.
From mid june to the end of summer, temperatures were up to the normal temperatures for the season. Thus hot climate and rain in august just before the harvest enabled the vines to give top quality grapes with good maturity.
We started by harvesting our parcels of vines in AOC Ventoux near the village of Caromb (Mont Ventoux hill) the first fifteen days of september. From 1st to 10th of october, we picked the grapes from our land in AOC Beaumes de Venise close to the village of Suzette at 300m altitude.
As we don’t have rain at all during the harvest, the grapes was picked at optimal maturity.
As a result, this vintage has low yield (25Hl/Hectare) but great quality !
Only one last thing : Taste it !
