Details

Set in the foothills of the Pyrenees, Roussillon is an open amphitheater with the Mediterranean to the east, bordered by the Corbières to the north and the Pyrenees to the south. Here, there have been vines for thousands of years and the first traces of cultivation dates back to ancient Greece. Le Domaine des Schistes, led by the family Sire, is located at the crossroads of territories of the Agly valley, in the towns of Estagel, Tautavel and Maury. Their first wine started in 1989 and the vineyards cover 55 ha. The first part of the development of Rivesaltes is performed in a cement tank and then in old casks and finally in big barrels. No container allows the promotion of oxidation. Their first wine is now 20 years old. During bottling, we only remove 20 to 30% of the barrels to keep a good base of old wine.
