Notes from Oinos Wines:
"Encouraged by his experience in wine making, Jérôme Calmes established his own estate in 2004 in Camplong, on Félines Minervois township, on one of the best terroir in Languedoc, at the northest part of Minervois Appellation area. It is 5 hectares and is situated on the foothills of Montagne Noire, between 220 and 350 meters above sea-level, where the soils are half schistous and half limestone. The unique influence of the Montagne Noire, however, produces cooler temperatures at this altitude, giving fresh nights and less heat during the hot Mediterranean days and it is this which contributes to Jerome's goal for balance, freshness and finesse. Significantly, the vintage starts a full month later than in other parts of the Languedoc-Roussillon."
