Description

At Domaine Le Sang de Cailloux, Lopy is one of Serge’s favourite wines. It is made from his old vines – and referred to as Vielles Vignes. (Lopy is the name of the town that Serge grew up in!)

A super blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah – that is aged on Oak for 12 months. This wine will just get better and better with age. Concentrated and dense, this Vacqueyras lingers for a long time thanks to the intensity of its aromas of ripe fruit, spices, leather and bitter cocoa. It originates from the vieilles vignes of Grenache and Syrah which were grown on soils of clay, brown limestone and rolled pebbles. Harvested by hand, fully destemmed and vinified in concrete vats, the wine was then aged for one year in 450-litre casks.

Serge Férigoule bought Le Sang des Cailloux in 1990, after having worked for 10 years with the previous owner. From there, he stopped chemical weeding and removed synthetic products. His son, Frédéri, joined him in 2003 and they decided to have the estate certified organic and then biodynamic. The 17 hectares of vineyarda in Vacqueyras  are located on a plateau facing the Dentelles de Montmirail. With its clay-limestone terroir, reddish brown, and its rolled pebbles, Le Sang des Cailloux mainly produces red wine but for several years Serge and Frédéri have been trying their hand at white.
