  • A silky Syrah, with elegant aromas of violet, wild raspberry, and spice through to a fruity palate with great mineral freshness on the finish. Black olives and black fruit complemented by mineral freshness on the finish.

The climate is Mediterranean, strongly influenced by cooling coastal breezes combined with mountain-freshness from the foothills of the Pyrenees which balance the hot, arid summers. The soils are made up of alluvial marls of the Roussillon plain, which imparts notes 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 at optimal maturity.

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 which showcase this distinctive terroir.
