Winery


Winery Description

Tribouley – an outsider (he was a social worker in his previous life) who understudied with Gauby and then began his own estate in 2002 – farms roughly 15 hectares biodynamically in the heart of the fabulous terroirs of the Roussillon in Latour de France. Yields are very low. He is a non-interventionist in the cellar. Jean-Louis likes to say that he lives from the earth while respecting it. His goal is to produce a "sincere" wine, respecting the vintage and the terroir.
