This wine comes from a small two-hectare appellation, which is revered for the intense and concentrated wines it produces. The 32-year-old vines are planted on a south-facing plot; as Mourvedre is a late-ripening variety, it needs full sun to reach optimum maturity. It is grown in schist soils, which provides drainage to create deep roots and water reserves for the vines and results in freshness and minerality in the wine. The vines are trained on wire trellises on the Double Royat system, which with two overlapping branches, promotes the maximum sap distribution in the vines. They are spaced at 2x2 meters to offer height and a larger foliage surface area, promoting good conditions for grape maturation. The fruit is hand-harvested in the cool of the night to preserve freshness and quality.

Since his childhood, Olivier Coste's favorite place to play was in the vineyards and the wine cellar at his family’s wine estate, which was founded in 1701 in Pézenas. With this upbringing, he developed a passion for nature, the Languedoc region, and southern French wines. The vineyards are located a few kilometres from Pezenas where the Mediterranean Sea asserts its influence on the vines. The estate is certified HVE Level 3, which complements the family’s existing ‘Carbon Neutral’ approach. They reduce their CO2 emissions, keeping them to a minimum, and offset the rest by financing ecological initiatives, including projects in India. Olivier’s (OC) original Stars range has been created for those who appreciate a modern, fresh, and fruity varietal wine and is complemented by quirky packaging.
