A parcel rented to us in 2007 by a retired friend of the family. It is situated in ‘Sarrians’ in an area called ‘l’aire du chateau’. It was the least liked of the previous farmer. We immediately converted it to Bio-Dynamic culture. The children from the Waldorf School came to harvest with us in 2008 and to sing to the vines and the grapes.  Hints of violets come through immediately in this wine, both on the nose and in the mouth, which gave birth to its wine name.
