The adventure starts like a fairy tale: once upon a time a small vineyard of old carignan was about to be replaced by beehives…
Plo Roucarels means small rocky plateau in occitan. It is run by two young and passionate wine makers, Julia Hubrich (from the former East Germany) and Julien Gil. This domain is located a few kilometers from the medieval citadel of Carcassonne, near the Pyrenees mountain range.
The vineyard is located at a climate crossroad. There is the Mediterranean climate and the Oceanic climate, which provide different kind of winds and make the grapes grows in exceptional conditions.
Under the Oceanic influence the cabernet sauvignon brings complexity and strength to the wines. Sandstones and marl of the Carignian combine to this Oceanic influence brings to this exclusively Mediterranean grape variety a unique subtility, spices and freshness.
All chemicals are strictly limited. They don’t use it only if it’s necessary. They check the weather and inspect for any parasites frequently.
They use a natural mixture based on humus and oligo-elements to fortify the grapes and galvanize the soil eco-system.
The vinification is as natural as possible. The harvest is scrupulously checked: no leaf, no snails, no dry or rotted raisins.
Every grape variety is vinified separately without adding any yeasts.
Red wines are neither filter nor sticked.
