The Viret family has chosen to employ a particular form of natural viticulture throughout their estate. Known as “cosmoculture®”, this is based on energy fields.  Everything is organized in such a way that both the vines and wines are able draw on their own natural defenses. The work in the vineyards focuses on reorganizing the magnetic field and on the application of homeopathic and natural preparations made from rocks and plants that are often found naturally within the vineyard.

Fruit for “Emergence” comes from a single organically/biodynamically-farmed parcel, this one with deep clay and lots of limestone pebbles, and it is planted to Grenache, Syrah, and Carignan in descending proportions. It ferments in cement with a long 45-day maceration and spends five years aging in well-used oak casks with no sulfur added at any point during the fermentation or aging.

Richly textured, dense and concentrated, with notes of chocolate and cassis.
