Domain: Mas Bruguière Winemaking has a long history in the Bruguière family, dating back to the 13th century. The whole vineyard was decimated by phylloxera in 1870. Today, Xavier Bruguière and his wife Marjorie run the family estate and have converted to organic viticulture. The first terroir, “Catafaroune”, lies five kilometres north of the domaine and is the coolest and therefore latest ripening of the vineyards. The second, “Le rocher de la bergère”, is earlier as it is south facing, growing on deep scree soil. Finally, “La Plaine” grows in clay-marl soil, surrounded by Pic Saint Loup and the cliffs of Hortus. Sulphite additions are kept to a minimum and their red wines are unfiltered.
