Domaine du Grand Crès - Fabrezan

In 1989, the opportunity arose for the former manager of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti to buy five hectares of vines in the hills of the Corbières appellation. Overlooking the valley near Lagrasse, at a height of 300 meters, the plot was surrounded by heath and the « garrigues » scrubland, thus providing the possibility of further planting.
Domaine du Grand Crès - Fabrezan
Pascaline et Hervé Leferrer set about equipping a cellar in the middle of the village and progressively cleared and prepared areas of this rocky, limestone-clay plateau where, despite it being difficult to reach, the Vines are most definitely in their element. For their red wines, they planted Syrah and Grenache and for their whites, Roussanne, Viognier and Muscat. They have recently bought 2 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon, so that since 2006 vintage, they can a vin de Pays d’OC as entry of range (bottles and Bag In Box). Domaine du Grand Crès, now, owns 19 hectares.

  Specialties

Planting densities of 5000 to 6000 head of vine per hectare, short pruning, high trellising, disbudding and cluster thinning, explain the low yields: 30 to 45 hectolitres per hectare.

Domaine du Grand Crès also respect the nature and have a healthy wine growing: very little fertilisation or chemical fertilizer, minimal tilling, grass in rows. The grapes are picked by hand using small crates with a selective picking. The crates are get down to cellar by van to avoid crushing of grape berry.

They have also planted 3 hectares of olive trees (Grossanne and Olivière varieties) to make their own olive oil, called OliCrès, still confidentiel but soon to be developped. Systematic destemming is practised.

Skin maceration and fermentation in vats on the lees for rosé and white wines; traditionnal maceration, pumping-over, punching of the cap and barrel ageing on the lees with another year in vats for the reds.

Corbières

A.O.C. Corbières

The Corbières is one of the wildest areas of France with one of the lowest population densities. It is picturesque with wine growing areas alternating with garigue and mountainous countryside. It is located mainly in the Aude département and partly in the Pyrénées-Orientales département. The River Aude borders the Corbières to the west and north. To the south is the River Agly and to the east the the Mediterranean Sea. The name Corbières comes from "cor" a pre-Celtic word meaning "rock" and "berre" from the River Berre which runs through Durban. The eastern part of the Corbières with its Etangs, borders the the Mediterranean Sea and is called the Corbières maritimes. It has its own distinctive climate and characteristic vegetation known as thermomediterranean vegetation...


Organic Wine

Organic Wine

The cornerstone of organic farming is the soil. Maintaining a healthy, biologically active soil is the main objective for an organic farmer. In the vineyard it means cultivating the soil and planting cover crops, instead of applying herbicides. It means using natural fertilizers, such as composted animal manure, versus chemical fertilizers. Organic growers use no synthetic growth-regulators (such as Alar). As for not using pesticides, the organic alternative is to encourage natural predators of insect pests instead of using poisonous insecticides. Organic farmers promote "biodiversity" and allow plants other than vines to grow in and around the vineyard. Biodiversity helps regulate the vineyard soil by attracting beneficial insects, spiders and predatory mites, as well as provide shelter and food (pollen, nectar and other bugs), and replaces the need for chemical pesticides or insecticides. What cannot be fully controlled through biodiversity can still be managed organically, through the use of naturally occurring plant or mineral extracts, which leave no residues in the soil. In wet climates the main difficulty is raised by the use of copper sulfate against mildew, which leaves over time levels of copper in the soil that need to be monitored....
