Charming domaine owned by the Jouve-Ferac family, who were one of the first in the region to sell their wines in bottle rather than in bulk. There are some very old Mourvèdre vines here, and their Cuvée Spéciale Longue Garde is almost entirely from these parcels of old vine, and needs ageing for ten to fifteen years. They also produce a more supple 'Tradition' red, as well as excellent rosé and white.

Useful information: Open for visits and tastings Monday to Friday 08:30-12:00 and 14:30-18:30 in summer, 08.30–12.00 and 13.30–17.30 in winter. Open Saturday afternoons in the summer. Some English spoken.
