The qualitative and homogenous cru Vinsobres was granted its own appellation in 2006. It is situated at the northern tip of the Côtes du Rhône area, and with vineyards reaching up to over 500m altitude, it benefits from cooler temperatures and higher rainfall which imparts the wines of the appellation with extra freshness and vibrancy.

Cédric Guillaume-Corbin

La Péquélette, the little girl in Provençal, is a haven of biodiversity with olive trees, truffle oaks and fruit trees alongside vineyards and woods. Cédric Guillaume-Corbin makes wines in the most natural way and ages them for two winters in different vessels, except for oak, before bottling them with a pinch of sulphur.

The Domaine’ motto is "Feet on the Ground and Head in the Stars" which characterizes perfectly the hyperactive Cédric.

La Péquélette

75% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah, 5% Carignan (14.5% alc.)

Péquélette is a small, 10 ha estate, run biodynamically at a cooler 350m altitude necessitating late harvests. Yields are extremely low at 18hh from 50 to 90yo vines. Cuve aged for 16 months, it has a delectable, very pure black cherry, raspberry, liquorice and cinnamon flecked fruit, old vine framework and fine tannins with a cleansing, saline note on the finish. Very digeste style.
