Domaine L'Harmas

"The vineyards in Chateauneuf were certified organic in 2012, and the Cotes du Rhone parcels followed in 2014 and 2015. With plantings that average 50 years old, Patrick and Nathalie manually dry-farm their vines, which are located in the northern terroirs of Chateauneuf du Pape, near Orange and Courthezon The Cotes du Rhone and Cotes du Rhone Village appellation grapes are vinified traditionally—which is to say the grapes are co-fermented with stems and spend about 20 days in cement before racking into used oak barrels. The wine is bottled unfiltered and the yields are very low for a CdR at 40 hl/ha." - T Edward
