Located in the tiny village of Vacquières high up in the dramatic Pic St.Loup appellation, just north of Montpellier, this 23 hectare domaine is run by Gilles & Sylvie Pagès., who represent the fourth generation of the Pagès family to farm here. The vines comprise old Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Mourvèdre and Carignan grown on barren argilo-calcaire soils, and they are farmed organically. Cool nights bring poise, freshness and acidity to offset the hot Mediterranean days. ‘Roman’ is dominated by old Carignan, with Grenache, Cinsault and Mourvèdre, and is dark, supple and compellingly lovely, with a bright acidity, whilst the rich, juicy ‘Jean’ dispenses with the Carignan, and Grenache takes the stage as the dominant player.
