Producer Note
This 15-hectare estate is the passion of Guilhem Viau, who produces multi awardwinning wines from vineyards situated at 658 metres’ altitude on the first spurs of the
Cevennes and Massif Central hills. The Dame Jeanne range is named after his
ancestor whom Guilhem describes as ‘an elegant, beautiful, very vivacious lady; a
shepherdess on the high plains of the Bergerie du Capucin’. The vineyards are
cultivated sustainably respecting the environment of this rugged landscape and
allowing for the full expression of the garrigue and wild herbs that characterise this
countryside.

Vineyard

AOP Pic Saint Loup is the most northern appellation in the Languedoc, located north
of Montpellier, at the base of the Cevennes and Massif Central hills. The soil is chalkyclay on marly sub-soil which imparts elegance to the wines. The climate is influenced
by the Mediterranean Sea which is 15 miles away, but is also continental due to the
surrounding hills. The diurnal temperature variation can be significant, with over 25°C
difference between day and night time temperatures, promoting a long growing
season. Average annual rainfall is 1,000mm which nourishes the vines throughout the
warm, dry summer. The combination of these factors results in excellent maturation
of the fruit and well-balanced wines. The vineyards are cultivated sustainably,
ploughing takes place to ensure good aeration of the soil and since 2020 the estate
is in conversion to organic status. Harvesting takes place mechanically in the cool of
the night.


Winemaking
The wine was traditionally made. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts in
temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to preserve the purity of fruit. The cuvée
was made without any influence of oak to preserve the fruity and spicy
characteristics of the terroir. The wine was aged in stainless steel tanks for 12 months,
before being gently prepared for bottling.


Tasting Note
A fresh and velvety wine with complex notes of blackberry, Morello cherry and
peach complemented by violet, pepper and balsamic nuances. The velvety smooth
and fleshy palate is enveloped in tight grained tannins through to a delicate
eucalyptus note on the finish.
