Le Mas des Chimères se situe sur la commune d'Octon en bordure du Lac du Salagou.
Deux types de terroir caractérisent ce territoire si particulier:
- Sur les « terres rouges » ( Permien très vieux sol de 250 millions d'années) seront produit les Vins de Pays des Coteaux du Salagou.
- Sur les plateaux basaltiques seront produit les AOP/AOC, Coteaux du Languedoc et Terrasses du Larzac.

La famille Dardé travaille la terre depuis plusieurs générations à Octon en polyculture: brebis, oliviers et vignes. Cela jusque dans les années 60 où l'élevage est abandonné au profit de la vigne.
Guilhem travaille avec son père et son oncle à partir de 1974. Les raisins étaient alors apportés à la cave coopérative du village.
Il s'installe en cave particulière en 1993 et crée le Mas des Chimères. Son épouse Palma travaille progressivement avec lui à partir de 1996, Maguelone sa fille les rejoint en 2008.

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
