Lionel is a former co-opérateur who now farms his own vines at Ribauté les Tavernes on the eastern edge of the Cévennes just south of Alès. One of only 2 independent producers among a total of 30 winemakers in the district, Lionel Pourquier bottles his wines as Vin de Pays (d’Oc, Duché d’Uzès or Cévennes) according to the exact location of the vines and the grapes deployed in each blend. The emphasis at Domaine Camp Galhan is on rich, spicy, full-bodied reds that, in Lionel’s own words, have “un bon rapport qualité/prix”.View more wines from this producer...
