Philippe Pibarot makes wine on the outskirts of the village of Mus, about half an hour's drive north east of Montpellier in southwestern France.
In 2001 Pibarot made its first vintage and now owns nine hectares of vineyard. Grapes such as Carignan, Mourvedre, Syrah, Counoise, Vermentino and Cinsault are grown here, which are distributed over two places. One contains the younger logs, and from there the wine is "Cante Renard" in red, white and rosé. The other field is completely wild, immersed between lots of garrique and ancient stone walls, and it gives the wine "Clos Domitia".
Pibarot works the nine acres mainly himself with his father. The earth consists of limestone clay.
"Cante Renard" is made on carignan, Morrastel (Mourvedre/Graciano/Monastrell), Syrah, Counselor and Cinsault who have been on a glass fiber tank. The grapes are harvested relatively early to make a spicy and fresh wine. The grapes grow in southern France and speak of their origins, but results are still a "vin de soif".
Vinet's scent goes directly to the fruit with cherry and black currant elements. The taste is full without being too heavy.
"Clos Domitia" is harvested a little later to give a slightly higher maturity. The wine is then grown on old dishes. Everything is certified ecologically.
In the basement everything is done by hand, of course without added yeast and without any kind of correction. The goal is always to make the wines completely free of additives, but the bottles when needed use a little sulfur when bottling.
