NEW - Domaine Boucabeille
22 April 2015

As specialists in Burgundy, Barolo and Germany, a wine coming from the Southern French appellation of Roussillon was always going to have to be really quite special in order to truly pique our interest. But so it was that while tasting scores of producers from France’s Mediterranean zones one in particular caused us to sit up and take note. Jean Boucabeille’s estate is perched on the schist slopes of the Forca Real hill, approximately 20 kms west of Perpignan. The self-contained vineyard amounts to 28 hectares laid out in one hundred metre terraces. Orientation is south easterly, giving the vines protection from the fierce evening sun and allowing direct access to the cool breezes coming off the Mediterranean. Holdings comprise Syrah, Grenache and Mouvedre, alongside Grenache Blanc, Rousanne and Macabeo. Everything is grown organically, and certified so, with a huge emphasis on the healthy state of the vineyard and surrounding countryside (there are over 100 beehives on the estate). The entire crop is worked and harvested by hand, and fermentations are allowed to happen naturally without recourse to cultured yeasts.    Read More
