Aurélien Petit started making wine in 2012 with two small parcels of vines just outside Montpeyroux. One parcel of 2.5 hectares is planted with vines between 20 and 50 years old. This parcel of Syrah, Carignan and Chenin Blanc was abandoned when he started the domaine. The second parcel of 2 hectares is a mix of soil types and vines – red clay, yellow clay and pebbly limestone plated with Mourvedre, Grenache and Carignan. For us, Aurélien's wines encapsulate the climate and terroir of the Hérault.
