Domaine de Ferrussac
Languedoc-Roussillon is France’s largest wine region, covering many different climates and soil types. The climate is influenced primarily by the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees mountains in the west along the border with Spain. The terrain is quite rugged and covered by garrigue, (flora or bushes that grow wildly over fields, including lavender, herbs, twigs, flowers).
Special location with respect of environment
On 5 hectares, the vineyard benefits from a good thermal amplitude day-night, from a clayey subsoil retaining the water of the Larzac, thus avoiding water stress. In conversion to organic, Renaud is eager to obtain certification: manure from his cows, infusions of plants to treat the vines, low yields (25 hectoliters per hectare), everything is done for a good compromise between quality and economic viability.
