Champs du Lièvre

COUNTRY :
France

REGION :
Languedoc-Roussillon

PRODUCTION :

Champs du lièvre is located in the small village of La Livinière in the southern French region of Languedoc-Roussillon. In the middle of the famous Minervois, the town has been awarded its very own AOC in 1999 thanks to its unique soils and climate that make it stand out. Winemaking here goes back to the Roman times and has been continuing since the 2nd century B.C.

The philosophy of Les champs du Lièvre is to produce small batches of great wines that show what the extraordinary terroir of La Livinière has to offer. They individually vinify each vineyard and varieties to bring forward the unique specificities of all of their vines.

The vines range from 15 to more than 60 years old. The grape varieties, such as Carignan, Syrah, Grenache Noir and Cinsault grow in a warm mediterranean climate. All harvesting are made by hand so that the grapes are carefully selected to insure the best maturity. Finally, the domaine is currently transitioning to organic farming.
