The Domaine des Enfants was founded 2006 by Swiss born Marcel Buhler and his Oregonian, sommelier-turned-chef de cave wife, Carrie Sumner. It consists of 25 ha mainly old vineyards of Carignan, Grenache, Syrah and Lladoner Pelut on different soils (schist, granite, gneiss and limestone) and heights situated in the greater area around the small village of Maury.
The ‘Tabula Rasa’ is a cuvee from Grenache gris, Grenache blanc, Carignan blanc and Macabeu. These you find scattered in the old red wine vineyards and are selectively harvested at an optimal ripeness of fruit. The exact percentage of shares is therefore not known. The grapes are first carefully pounded with feet and then processed with the wine press. After the natural sedimentation the juice is transferred to 400 L. barrels, where the fermentation will commence. After fermentation is finished, the wines are developed on lees. Approximately one year a minimum of sulfur at bottling. It offers classic notes of dried pineapple, honeysuckle, crushed rocks and toast. This is followed by a medium-bodied, full, fleshy and textured white that will do well when paired with food.
