Clos des Fées is relatively new in the wine world, beginning in 1998, when Herve and Claudine settled in Vingrau, on the high cool slopes of the northern edge of Roussillon. Buying up old and often abandoned vineyards from these high slopes, Herve has gradually amassed dozens of tiny plots, of which many are magnificent mature vineyards spread throughout these cooler slopes.
Hand harvested, tiny yields of perfectly ripe fruit using minimal SO2 during the winemaking process resulting in wines show remarkable finesse and freshness. PWS

"...wines that have turned heads every bit as much as does the local scenery and brought Bizeul well-deserved recognition as a beacon of Roussillon quality. ROBERT PARKER, The Wine Advocate

A blend of 60% Grenache and 20% Syrah and 20% Cinsault made in a fresh bright slurpable style with strawberry and rose garden aromatics and pale colour yet packed with flavour and freshness and finesse. So pretty and engaging with lovely depth and texture and could be slightly chilled for best effect. PWS

Crafted to be a fresh, easy-drinking red, the 2017 IGP Cotes Catalanes Modeste is light to medium-bodied, with ripe scents and flavors of black cherries, silky tannins and a crisp finish. It's a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. The Wine Advocate
