It all began in 2002, when Charles and Ruth Simpson bought the domaine with a simple ambition: to create outstanding wine. However, Ruth and Charles have decided to bring a very modern approach to the way they manage their vineyards. Read more

Production note

In the Languedoc, Mourvedre is known to be the last variety to bud and ripen, as is Petit Verdot in Bordeaux. Les Derniers Cépages (the last/latest varieties) is a unique blend of these two late-ripening red grape varieties. Each variety was vinified separately after a cold soak, beginning their traditional fermentation in temperature-controlled, epoxy lined, concrete tanks. The Petit Verdot was then transferred to 1-year-old American oak barrels to complete fermentation and to age for 6 months.
