Montirius covers the zones classified as Gigondas, Vacqueyras, and Cotes du Rhone. Christine and Eric Saurel took over the domain in 1986 and are the 5th generation of wine growers. Following a personal life development and a deciding encounter with Francois Bouchet (Biodynamic wine grower from the Loire) in 1996, they converted their concern, and six years later, invested in the building of a winery; concrete vats constructed using ‘informed’ water so that the winery would vibrate at the same frequency as the site (the memory of water). The building was perceived to be the extension of the vines so as to stay in permanent contact with the living world; wine is the conveyer of information transmitted by the earth and the sub soil. Built in harmony with it’s site, the winery can take in the entire harvest without having to de-vat, and in so doing the grapes have all the time they need to give of their best. The choice of a manual harvest date is done by tasting the grapes. The wine making process starts with maceration before the alcoholic fermentation so as to extract the fullness and aromas of grapes gathered in full maturity. The maturing is done exclusively in cement vats and bottles – a method chosen by Christine and Eric to allow full expression of the fruit. The wines of Montirius are characterised by their subtlety, elegance, and balance giving a surprising minerality and freshness for wines from the south of France.
