THE SONG OF THE BAUMES

ON THE
ROADS
TO ROME

A SELECTION
OF HILLSIDES

Duché d’Uzès, this young controlled designation of origin (AOC) has carefully selected the finest hillside terroirs from Anduze to the Pont du Gard. Our “Chemins de Rome” cuvée is nestled beneath the hills, on shaded slopes. We are not exactly the first to appreciate it… There was once a Roman camp around these plots and tomorrow, who knows, on these lands ideally prepared for climate change. We are only passing by and borrowing it.

The Rhone-style blend of syrah/grenache on reds, rosés and white grenache, roussanne and viognier on whites make them classics of the appellation.

THE SONG
OF THE BAUMES

SO COVETED FOR OVER
de 2000 YEARS

Under the oppidum of Labaume, just below the wood that is also a large hunting reserve, there is this piece of land that moves us so much. It’s called: Le Chant des Baumes.

Surrounded by scrubland, olive trees and truffle oaks, it’s in this isolated and unspoilt landscape that we grow our old vines on hillside slopes. It remains intriguing to imagine of the winegrowers who cultivated this land before our time, as evidenced by this large stone used as a wine press over 2,000 years ago.

Using local grape varieties, syrah and grenache, yields are controlled at just 30 hl/ha. The red wine will need 18 months to round out its character. The rosé will be blended with the elegant mourvèdre.

a confession to share

On the promontory of Labaume, at the end of the road, there is this small vineyard in the middle of a horizon of scrubland and olive trees. It overlooks the Duchy of Uzès.

. It is the wildest, but also the most mature and resilient. It gives the best of itself each vintage. It is the rarity of these grapes that gave it its name.

For the white, it was when we tasted the barrels of Viognier, Grenache and Roussanne that we knew we were ready. Three elements stood out: the right grapes, the right wood, the right toast – everything came together to make them stand out.

For the rosé, it was in the cellar that things became clear: after all those years of observation and precision, one tank stood out. We isolated and pampered it.
