RESPECT FOR THE SOILS... RESPECT FOR THE WINES, THESE ARE THE KEY WORDS OF THE ESTATE. OUR WINES ARE MATURED FOR 18 MONTHS. THEY ARE BOTTLED UNFILTRED. OUR CONSTANT CONCERN IS TO PRESERVE THE QUALITY OF THE FRUIT AND ALL THE ORIGINALITY OF THE SOIL.

the wines resulting from these soils are full-bodied with elegant tannins, rich raspberry flavours and an astonishing lingering finish.

Les terres Blanches is a blend of Grenache 80% and Syrah 20%.
In 2000, we produced 4000 bottles of this vintage.

Les Terres Blanches reveals the taste of a grenache grown on harch soils.

Jean-François and Cathy Izarn have 60 hectares, 15 of which they cultivate. Since 1998 the approach has been biodynamic. The beauty of the property is the diverse soils to be found here — limestone mixed with clay, schist, fossil pebbles from what had once been a river bed — and the distinct character they impart to each of the cuvées. The soils are healthy and alive, yields are kept low, harvest is by hand, work in the chai is carefully managed. Borie la Vitarèle is deep enough in the country that it escapes any chemical blow-over from other domaines. Nature has nowhere been compromised.

JEAN-FRANÇOIS IZARN is an artist, not just in his wine-making. He also has a particular interest in growing bonsai. He is a chef, and with his wife operates a ‘ferme auberge’ on the property. A man of many interests and talents, someone for whom viniculture is part of a broad world view.

The individual character and complexities of the wines of Borie la Vitarèle are impressive. There is not one — from the lighter-bodied, summer-drinking La Cuvèe des Cigales to the much deeper, limited-production Les Crès — that wouldn’t find pride of place at any table. Neither do they bear any pretensions. Their prices present the opportunity for everyone to drink well. These attributes would seem to be a natural extension of the process that brought the wine to the bottle, a reflection of the philosophy that let to the creation of Borie la Vitarèle.
