Cathy and Daniel Laffite's 15ha domaine is lost in the wild hilly back-lands between Tautavel and Maury. Have a walk in their vineyards: you’ll wonder how anything grows at all in this ‘soil’ made up of dry schist and stones. Daniel once joked that he wears out two pairs of boots a year! Their best wines include the structured Sarrat del Mas, Côtes du Roussillon Villages, and two seductive Vins de Pays reds made from Grenache and Carignan: Cuvée Jean Pull and Bastoul Laffite. And let's not forget their fine Maury VDNs made in three different styles.
