Malherbe,
a hillside vineyard

Our vines, below the slopes of Cap Bénat, grow on a brown clay-schist soil. The climate and the characteristics of the soil produce highly concentrated grapes high in tannins, full-bodied, complex wines ideal for drinking with meals. The unique characteristics of the Malherbe terroir, in particular the schist, give a mineral edge and a harmonious nose to these red, white and rosé wines.
