Lous Grezes is member of the Vins S.A.I.N.S. Wines "Sans Aucun Intrant Ni Sulfite" (ajouté), without chemicals, no added sulphites on the whole production.
At a hight of135m - 180 m, the vines on a soil of marnes-valenginiens, very chalky clay soil, are the highest and poorest soil of Domessargues. Unlike the rich sunny atmosphere a fine acidity is guaranteed, a chalky taste is often present. The vines have a south west direction and have a average age of 40 years. Fertilizer is not allowed, at least a bit of compost is used if necessary. Working the land is completely mechanically as well as weeding out under the vines using handmaterial. Natural vineyards are maintained by exposure to the tramontana and mistral, which promotes organic farming. The proximity of the Cevennes explains variations in consistent temperatures between day and night. This empathetic approach demonstrates respect for the fruit and the plant.
The vine is cut late in 'double Guyot', the branches are built in ‘Palissage’ and have recently been enhanced to optimize photosynthesis. To control growth, the plant isn’t “ébourgeonné” anymore as before because, now, flowering yields are naturally controlled. The ‘entre-coeurs’ were evicted if necessary, it is a biological technique to avoid rot. But the current vegetation is more quiet and enjoy treatments to nettle BREW, horsetail, etc.. made at home. From there on, the grapes can ripen until the manual harvest. The fruit cannot be too mature when harvested, but must have enough ripe tannins, which requires perfect timing to the ready day of harvest to ensure fresh acids. During hand harvesting, a severe selection leads only good healthy grapes to the tank.
All wines wines are vinified, high and packaged without sulfites (Member ' S.A.I.N.S. wine) or other inputs. The wines have a potential unexpected guard.
The wines are part of the Cévennes region of the 'Piémont Cévenol' a true local mineral and highest terroir. However Lous Grèzes had the first Cuvées Duché d'Uzès in Japan, in Quebec or in Singapore, elected as winemakers of the year 2011-12 by the Gault and Millau ; the field take no more parts of the Duché d Uzès. The field wants to highlight the beautiful land and more Nordic region which is the Piémont Cévenol where the vineyards really are located... A wink by 'du chai du Grèzes' part.
