A single 1.16 hectare plot is devoted to one of the property's finest cuvées, the sublime, almost legendary "Petite Sibérie". The old Grenache Noir vines grow in somewhat extreme conditions on a clay-limestone base, covered with schist with an exceptionally high iron content. The plot is exposed to an icy wind for more than 200 days of the year, hence its name, "Little Siberia". The wine is topped up regularly with a blend of Mourvèdre and Syrah, and then bottled without filtration. A superb, dense, complex wines that needs at least 15 years to reveal its potential.

Tasting notes:This wine features a bright bouquet of stone fruits, citrus, and white flowers. On the palate, it is full-bodied with a rich texture, balanced by vibrant acidity and a long, refreshing finish.

After owning a wine bar in Paris and working a few years as a wine journalist, Hervé Bizeul, a former “France’s Best Young Sommelier”, founded the Clos des Fées in 1998 with his wife. His idea was to produce a good wine for friends. The first vintage, created in his garage with very little investments, was a huge success immediately. Today, his wines are sold worldwide.

The vines span across a number of differing terroirs across the Roussillon, as much as 15 km apart from each other. The varying exposures and myriad of subsoils from granite to limestone make for a thoroughly unique and consistent quality. Old vines (up to 100 years old in some sectors), hand picking, … a viticultural philosophy that is respectful to nature and explains the high quality of the wines. Grenache, Carignan, Syrah, Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris make up the majority of the plantings. The wines are aged in oak barriques for at least a year and are bottled without filtration.
