Producer Profile

Fond Cyprès

Fond Cyprès wines, crafted by Laetitia Ourliac and Rodolphe Gianesini, offer a soulful and luscious lineup featuring Carignan, Syrah, Grenache, Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Viognier, Muscat, and Cinsault, along with various blends. This charming couple, often referred to as the Brigitte Bardot of Corbières and her endearing husband, are dedicated to producing wines that express the sultry essence of the Languedoc region, particularly from their home in Escales, at the northern edge of the Corbières AOC.

Their 15-hectare domaine, beginning at the end of a road lined with cypress trees, spans across lush vegetation reminiscent of a secret garden. Here, they grow olives, tomatoes, eggplants, wild herbs, and even nurture newly-born kittens.

Where The Wines Come From


In the sun-kissed vineyards of Languedoc-Roussillon, the natural wine movement thrives, intertwining tradition with innovation in every sip. Embracing organic and biodynamic practices, winemakers here eschew additives and interventions, allowing the terroir to speak authentically through each bottle. From the rugged foothills of the Pyrenees to the coastal plains along the Mediterranean, diverse microclimates nurture a rich tapestry of grape varietals, including Carignan, Grenache, and Mourvèdre, among others. These wines, marked by their purity and vitality, reflect not only the region's ancient winemaking heritage but also its commitment to sustainability and respect for the land. In Languedoc-Roussillon, natural wine isn't just a trend; it's a way of life, encapsulating the essence of the land and the passion of its people in every pour.
