Based about 20km west of Perpignan, easy-going Jérôme Rouaud and his wife Sophie farm 13ha organically (right from when they started in 2003), grouped in six vineyard parcels lying on the hills around Pézilla where their cellar is located. Look out for their spicy rich Côtes du Roussillon Villages called Têt Pourpre (Syrah, Carignan, Grenache), a seductive 100% Grenache called Barbacane, the new Mourvèdre-based Essencia cuvée and deliciously fruity Ganaxe, a Rivesaltes Grenat (styled like a Late Bottled Vintage Port).
