Mas Bruguière cultivates 20 hectares of vines made up of 3 independent vineyard plots. The estate’s size allows it to be worked on a “human scale”. Vineyard work has top priority and the vines are therefore maintained in impeccable condition. Each generation has made a useful contribution, certainly helped by the beauty of the place.
The 1st plot faces fully south below the Hortus cliff and its soil is composed of deep scree. This plot is home to old Grenaches vines replanted in 1976 and Mourvèdre vines planted below the cliff in 1987.
The 2nd plot, on the other hand, faces fully north, at the foot of the Pic Saint Loup hillside. The soil is clay-marl and the old Syrah vines planted in the early 80s are perfectly suited here.
The 3rd plot is located away from the Mas, around 5 km in the northern part of the appellation. The domaine’s young vines – Syrah, Roussanne and Marsanne – grow here. This cooler terroir is made up of red clay and hard limestone. This plot allows us to accentuate our wines’ freshness and balance. It is the latest ripening plot of the three. In 2008, we added the Vermentino grape variety, which will enable us to complete the “Les Mûriers” white wine blend.
