Winemaking Notes: Organic and biodynamic grapes on clay-limestone soil. Destemmed and cold-fermented, aged in stainless for 3-4 months

Producer Notes: The vineyards of Chateau de Lascaux have been in the same family for 13 generations, though the domaine itself wasn’t properly established until 1984 under Jean-Benoit Cavalier, who consolidated and expanded the vineyards before converting them to organic and biodynamic viticulture

Area Notes: Languedoc-Rousillon is a large and productive area in the south of France. It has a warm, Mediterranean climate, though these particular vineyards are located around Pic Saint-Loup, which gives them slightly better elevation and cooler evenings, which coupled with better daytime sun exposure makes for superior wines
