A small family property of less than 10 ha located since several generations in the tiny Hameau of Gasparets at deepest of Corbières area. Pierre MARTINOLLE (87 years) helped regularly by his children Jean-Pierre and Francoise, realizes there, in an artisanal and organic way, authentic and exceptional wines in the respect of the traditions which were transmitted to him. Dry soils of secondary and tertiary origin with affleurement of limestone and sandstone, sunny exposure of the Corbieres area (and Corbieres-Boutenac), swept by the Cers (a North wind, cold, violent and protective) and the Marin (from the Mediterranean sea) which brings its soft and warm moisture. Traditional and organic vinification in centenary cement tanks for the reds, in stainless steel tanks for white and rosé. Ageing in stainless steel tanks and partly in oak barrels for the Corbières-Boutenac. Rosés are made by bleeding and / or direct pressing at controlled temperature. Whites are made by direct pressing. Remarkable Corbières Boutenac Organic oak cask 2016, silver medal Amphore Organic Wines competition, complex nose with notes of plum and humus, dense but fine tannins, full-bodied, fresh and warm with these nuances of blackcurrant and pepper jam, a wine not yet mature, which continues its beautiful evolution. The 2015, with the scents of blackcurrant, mixing color and material, has a nice spicy finish, it is a perfect wine with a rabbit stew or a lamb pot with croutons. The 100% Syrah plot (IGP Pays d'Oc) red Sang des Pierres 2015, is a beautiful deep purple, with aromas of ripe black fruits, violet, slightly spicy, ripe mouth, very good tannic base, to open on a caramelized rabbit with spices. Excellent Corbières red 2016 Bio, 40% Grenache, 40% Carignan and 20% Syrah, traditional vinification in century cement tank then stainless steel tank, a wine scented, ample and velvety, persistent in mouth, fleshy and very aromatic, with aromas of very ripe black fruit. On the gourmet, the seductive Corbières rosé 2017 Bio, 60% Cinsault and 40% Grenache, bleeding and pressing, fermentations at controlled temperature, it has a pale pink and shiny color, with delicate nose of citrus and fresh fruit, it is all flexible. Le Corbières blanc 2017 Bio, 80% Rolle and 20% Grenache, temperature-controlled fermentation, on lees, is all finesse, distinguished, long in mouth, with aromas where one finds the acacia. And this very nice IGP Country of Oc Viognier 2018 Organic, sweet mouth, while subtle aromas, with notes of citrus and flowers, is very persistent, a fruity wine, well balanced, of a nice finish. “We consider ourselves to be wine growing artisans, producing only small vintages sometimes as little as a 1000 bottles or less. Worried for decades of realizing a reasoned and reasonable vine growing and wine making for the ecosystem, we realize Organic Wines with limitation of inputs."
