An excellent producer in the beautiful Pic St Loup area a bit north of Montpellier. The Ravaille family owns the property since a few hundred years back. The current generation is the fifth with the three brothers Jean-Marc, Xavier and Pierre in charge. They have 35 ha with a great variety in soil types giving added complexity to the wines. Two of my favourites are the Cuvée Classique made from grapes grown on red clay and gravel. The wine is concentrated with a bouquet of red berries and garrigue (herbs, thyme, laurel…), and the Cuvée St Agnès, grown on limestone with some rocks, giving a dense, concentrated wine with lots of herbs and minerality and a spicy finish. All their wines are very well structured.
