  • An aromatic and fruity blend with crunchy red and black brambly fruits complemented by a touch of peppery spice and a subtle hint of violet. Juicy and fresh with a lovely purity of fruit.

The climate is Mediterranean, strongly influenced by cooling coastal breezes combined with freshness from the foothills of the Pyrenees, which temper the hot, arid summers. The vines are grown on the Roussillon plains where the soils are made up of alluvial marls with black schist, which imparts great aromatic complexity to the wines, characterised by notes of black fruits, garrigue and freshness. The vineyard is certified organic, no herbicides or chemicals are used. Yields are kept low to ensure good concentration of the pure fruit flavours and the fruit is hand-harvested.

Chateau de l’Ou is a dynamic, organic estate in Montescot, Roussillon owned by oenologists Severine and Philippe Bourrier. Purchased in 1998, they immediately converted to organic farming, an avant-gardist approach in Roussillon at that time, and the estate is now certified by Ecocert. The estate, which originally comprised 30 hectares: 26 hectares of vineyard and four olive trees, has been gradually expanded by adding plots from across the region, by 2018, it covered a further 45 hectares. L'Ou’ translates as ‘egg’ in Catalan and refers to an ovoid-shape resurgence of water that was located at the site of the property, which Severine and Philippe wanted to bring to life in their project. Together, they use their expertise to cultivate the Roussillon terroir with its heat and arid lands to hand-craft wines using a variety of fermentation vessels, from terracotta and sandstone amphora to barrels, producing stunning, supple cuvees that showcase this distinctive terroir.
