WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING

“A fresh and fruity mélange of blueberries and cherries, and it's medium-bodied and supple. This is a joyous wine to drink over the next couple of years while waiting for more serious wines to mature, but it's not lacking substance of its own.” Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate

OUR NOTES

"Sorcières" - literally, "witches" - is the most famous cuvée from Clos des Fées when it comes to more affordable wines and has become one of the region's references in its category. Clos des Fées is one of the most famous and respected producers in Roussillon. 

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 different 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), handpicking, … 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 barrels for at least a year and are bottled without filtration.
