The Castalides are our top wines. This line is an homage to the ‘Castalides,’ the water nymphs who guard the several wells at La Grange and make sure that there is always enough water, a blessing in the hot Languedoc.
The grapes are from our best and oldest vineyards. The gnarly old vines are more than 50 years old and can only be harvested by hand. The yield is relatively low but the quality is outstanding.
All three wines are cuvees from the classic varieties of the Languedoc: Mourvèdre, Syrah and Grenache. They are complex and very elegant wines which receive their final touch by maturing in the barrique. They are impressive, complex personalities.
