In 1981, while in his early twenties, Hervé Bizeul was acclaimed the Best Young Sommelier in France. In 1998, after a spell in journalism, Hervé transferred his skills and attention to a small parcel of abandoned vines in a corner of the Roussillon that he felt had great potential.
Despite vinifying his first vintage at the back of a friend's cellar, the domaine has gone from strength to strength and two decades later is revered throughout France.View more wines from this producer...
