Alain and Isabelle Caujolle-Gazet settled to make wine in Montpeyroux in Languedoc in 1998. Today they have 11 hectares, 7 of which are on very poor soil (and thus good for wine growing) on the Montpeyroux plateau and this is the source of their cuvée Héméra. This is an excellent example of this peculiar Montpeyroux terroir, says Alain. Héméra is made from 75% Syrah and 25% Grenache. The style is densely concentrated with typical aromas of Syrah – charcuteri, spices and dark berries. Try it, or any other of the Grécaux wines, if you can find it!
