Terroir

At the heart of the AOP Saint-Chinian, the domain Saint Cels benefits from an exceptional terroir with a diversity of soils used in organic viticulture: schist hillsides, clay-limestone valleys, rolled pebbles. As throughout the territory of Saint-chinian, the climate and the vegetation which influence the profile and the nose of the wines are typically Mediterranean.

The fruit of a three-hectare parcel vineyard located on clay-limestone hillsides south of the village of Saint-Chinian, the cuvée Long Combe is a perfect testimony.

Grape varieties and culture

The cuvée Long Combe comes from the balanced blend of a trio of grape varieties. White Grenache gives it the lightness and delicacy of white flower notes. The Roussanne infuses with finesse the notes of dried fruits. The Rolle, long called Vermentino, comes to fix the whole with its own touch of freshness.
The vines that contribute to this harmonic trio bring a richness based on an average age of the vines greater than 25 years. Their expressive potential is enhanced by the management of the vineyard in organic viticulture which favors the partial grassing of the rows of vines.
