Product Description

Domaine de Vedilhan (pronounced ‘Domaine de Ved-ee-ohn’) is the estate of the Fayet family based in the village of Moussan close to Narbonne. The property is quite unique in that there is a natural brook running around the outskirts which provides natural irrigation to give much needed water. This gives the wines their freshness and appeal; keeping the vines cool in a very hot climate. 50% of the production from this Domaine is used for Boutinot wines. Since 1999 our winemakers have been working closely with the Fayets on all aspects of the production, from when to harvest to the exact blend or style of wines. Vines are managed using the lutte raisonnĂ©e. Terroir is a combination of limestone, sand and sea shale.

Richly textured with bitter-sweet aromas of crystalised orange peel, ginger and cream. Barrel-fermentation brings subtle texture and richness rather than a dominant oaky flavour, leaving rich stone fruits and lightly tannic herbs to shine through.
