Terrasses du Larzac
Nicole Michel & Jean-Yves Chaperon
7.8 Hectares vineyard in Terrasses du Larzac in Languedoc in the village of St Andre de Sangonis, 30kms N.W Montpellier.
Jean-Yves Chaperon and his wife Nicole Michel have created the vineyard in 2005. The terroirs have large rolled pebbles stones, with high thermal amplitude and frequent north wind.
Those conditions provide wines with maturity, structure and freshness at the same time.
