Les Berceaux

The vines are located at altitudes of up to 600 m, which allows them to benefit from very late ripening conditions.
After their vinification, we mature them in our cellars with the rest of the range in Châteauneuf du Pape.

Les cartes en main

Nature

Situated at the foothills of the Ventoux, these high altitude and predominantly clay-limestone soils impact finesse and freshness to the wines. The harsh Mistral winds are tamed by the mountainous topography.

The hand of man

Predominantly a duo of Grenache noir and Syrah, gobelet and cordon pruning systems, 44 hL/ha yields. Sustainable viticulture. Manual and mechanical harvests. Fully de-stemmed in order to conserve freshness and length.

Character and potential

Organoleptic profile: red fruits, licorice and violet. Rich, fruity and very approachable wines

Notre ambition

Vision

Edouard Guérin: ‘At the foothills of Mont Chauve I only have one single objective: preserving the softness of the fruit by systematically de-stemming the whole harvest. The temperatures are controlled during fermentation and extraction is always gentle.’

Profile

The juices are concentrated and very aromatic. The wines must be well structured yet not excessively powerful. Our aim is an approachable and easy-to-drink wine.

Tasting notes

‘This wine exudes happiness. It is unpretentious, uncomplicated and a pure pleasure to drink!’
