Domaine de Roquemale (Dominique & Valérie Ibanez)
In 2001, Dominique & Valérie Ibanez purchased 10 hectares of vines in the village of Villeveyrac, just west of Montpellier. The vines are situated in a small valley behind an old, disused railway viaduct, an image that was chosen as the emblem of the Domaine. The vines are approximately 20 years old, and are surrounded by garrigue on gentle hillsides of clay and limestone with a very stoney surface. A lot of the soil is red because of the bauxite ore found nearby. 'Roquemale' in the Languedoc language means poor soil, which can be positive for the vines, as it produces few grapes with greater concentration.View more wines from this producer...
