Description

Sang de Cailloux Floureto is one of the stock wines at this Vacqueyras vineyard in Southern Rhone. Each year, the Cuvée Traditionnelle of Le Sang des Cailloux is named for one of his daughters, Floureto, Doucinello and Azalaïs. 2019 is the turn of Floureto.

It is made from the classic Vacqueyras blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Carignan-Mourvèdre-Cinsault. The terroir is reddish brown clay with limestone soil on a plateau of rolled pebbles. This means there is excellent drainage here.

The wines are hand harvested, spending the vinification time in steel tanks with a daily pump over, before spending 12 months in oak tanks.

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.
