Domaine de Pergaud is the designation for Eric's best expressions of terroir, usually in the form of micro-productions from very old vines.
Here Eric dubs his wine “Vieille Serine” after the ancient strain of Syrah. Some even speculate Serine isn't Syrah at all but it's own genetic entity.
Prior to Eric taking over these vines, they'd been farmed exclusively by a Protestant religious group known as the Darbistes. The result: chemicals have never been used on this site in its 400 years of existence.
Mostly whole-cluster, one week maceration. Fermented in concrete and aged in 2500l barrels and demi-muids.
