One of the widest selections of the web of authors' wines and craftsmen


Le Clos Rouge est situé dans l'appellation "Terrasses du Larzac" sur la commune de Saint-Jean-de-la-Blaquière. De 2 hectares en 2013, le domaine s'étend depuis fin 2017 sur 8 hectares par l'ajout de nouvelles parcelles de Cinsault, Carignan, Grenache et Syrah.

Le travail dans la vigne se fait sans intrants phytosanitaires issus de l'industrie, avec un désherbage mécanique et manuel. L'utilisation de purins et de décoctions (ortie, prêle, fougère et consoude) étant associée systématiquement aux pulvérisations de soufre et de cuivre. Les démarches pour la certification AB, entreprises en 2015, permettront de voir apparaître le logo pour le millésime 2018 !

Toute la vendange se fait dans des caissettes de 10 à 20 kg. Le raisin est égrappé/non foulé. L'encuvage est fait manuellement. En cuve remontages et pigeages sont raisonnés en fonction de la dégustation pour éviter les sur-extractions.

Assemblage : Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault

Vinification : éraflage total, encuvage par gravité. Levures indigènes. Elevage de 18 mois en barrique.

Une Terrasses du Larzac alliant finesse et élégance. Le soleil du Languedoc apporte sa générosité, le Larzac sa fraîcheur et font de Babel un vin complexe et structuré qui accompagnera vos menus en toutes saisons.

What is an author wine?

This can be so diverse depending on the personality of their sire, that it is easier to define what it is not. An author wine is anything but a standard, stereotypical wine, made to please as many people as possible. It is therefore rarely produced in millions of copies, copying itself from vintage in vintage.

An author wine is therefore a wine that does not look like that of the neighbor. Which from year to year will evolve according to the vagaries of the weather and the mood of the author - the two that can be linked. Because the author does not rely on market studies to carry out his boat. He makes his wine as he feels, as he likes, as he can, sometimes ... and too bad if he does not please everyone.

This is why author wines are sometimes classified as "table wine" or "France wine". Because the winemaker did not plan the authorized grape variety*, makes the assembly or vinification recommended in the name **. He is often a bit rebellious, our author. But that is why we like it! ... That said, author's wines are not systematically marginal: they are present in most of the appellations, and can be part of the elite of these this***. Because they are not content to have personality: they are good, in addition! With in general aDegree of TorchabilityVery high: we never tire of it at the end of the first sip.

As author's wines are not chaptalized, levied, hacked ... They can have very different profiles depending on the vintage. It is up to us (resellers and consumers) to accept them as they are, and to remain faithful to the producers, because they need us to continue their activity.


* For example, theTouriga Nacionalin the Minervois, or theSyrahIn Forez ribs. They are crazy, these authors!

** Some winegrowers dare to produceSweety with Mourvèdre or oneNatural sparkling with Pineau d'Aunis

*** Like those of Jean-François Ganevat in the Jura or Zind-Humbercht in Alsace
