Our wines

All the versions of this article: [Deutsch] [English] [français]

My affection to this arid, rocky piece of earth, where draught prevails more than elsewhere, encouraged me to preserve some antique vineyards, planted with Carignan (1905 and 1910), Alicante (1927), Picpoul noir (1910) and Aramon (1930), as well as a Picpoul blanc from 1910.
In the 1980s, I started growing grape varieties recommended by the Minervois farmers union: Cinsault, Grenache noir, Syrah and Mourvèdre for the red varieties, and Vermentino, Muscat petits grains as well as Grenache blanc and gris to make white wines.

Since 2000, longing for originality and freedom, I am experimenting with grape varieties from highly renowned wine regions of both France and abroad: Pinot noir from Burgundy, Nebbiolo from Barolo and Touriga nacional from the Dao and Douro regions in Portugal.

Pierre Cros rosé Partouse
Partouse rosé 2018

It was one of you, passing by the winery last summer, who nourished the idea in me to name this new Rosé wine. It’s the first harvest of this vineyard planted with old grape varieties of the Languedoc in 2011. This is an assembly of “commoners” - Aramon, Picquepoul, Morrastel and Rivairenc - accompanied by the so-called “noble” grape varieties Cinsault and Grenache. From this blend, this assembly, this gathering, this mix ... of all these varieties, a wine with an evocative name was born...
