He is one of the first producers to print the name of the appellation on his bottles and obtained a golden medal in the National Agricultural Concours of Paris in 1932.Grouped together from La Machotte up to Romane, four type of soils imprint their personality and concentrate the aromas by naturally limited yields. Their terroirs are very well adapted to wines with a good aging capacity and the expression of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault (for rosé) and Clairette (for white wine) on these terroirs among the highest of the appellation, is very personalised and the wines are powerfully spiced.
