Certified organic since the 2011 vintage, the vines are grown on a hillside vineyard which benefits from more than 300 days of sunshine per year. Grown in chalky and clay soils, the vines are over 40 years old and produce an average yield of 30 hectolitres per hectare. Debudding takes place in May and a green harvest in July in order to concentrate the flavours in the berries. The grapes are hand-harvested in two tranches in September, when they have reached the optimal maturity and ripeness levels, from the best plots of the vineyard.

Domaine La Rouviole is located in the renowned Cru La Livinière area of Minervois, not far from Carcassone in the Languedoc. For over 70 years, the estate has been in the hands of the Léonor family. In 2020, the domain was acquired by M. et Mme Bour, who
plan to invest in the vineyard and cellar to further increase the quality of these lovely terroir-driven wines. Franck Léonor remains as the winemaker, where he skilfully crafts blends of Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault and Carignan from the finest and oldest plots on
the estate. The estate, which covers just over 40 hectare estate, includes vines, garrigue and olive trees which flourish in the Mediterranean climate. Great care is taken to hand-harvest the grapes at optimum ripeness and to express the terroir of the
area. The wines have been certified organic since the 2011 vintage.
