Laurent Hartung, originally from Belgium, is a true nature lover. He decided to settle down in the Languedoc region to become vintner as a way for him to live his passion and to be able to work outside every day. He eventually found his piece of heaven in a beautiful natural site of 67 hectares with his father, Eddy, and his brother, Fabrice: the Domaine du Poujol. They became owners in August 2016.Since then, father and sons have been working every day at building their Garden of Eden, all in symbiosis with Nature. Aided by the natural surrounding “garrigue,” a southern French hallmark, the domain has remained biodynamic for the last 20 years, cultivated in rhythm with the lunar calendar. Their 10 hectares of vineyards contain a diversity of varieties—Carignan Noir and Blanc, Grenache Noir, Syrah, Cinsault, Mourvedre, Cabernet Sauvignon, Roussanne and Vermentino—allowing Poujol to articulate the specificities of terroir and vintage in every one of their small cuvees.
The domain is biodynamically farmed and the grapes for this wine manually harvested from 1.5 hectares of vineyards, grown in calcerous soil.
Vinified in fiberglass tanks. Undergoes no malolactic fermentation.
