PESOUL ET PENDUT

Born of a unique parcel with extreme climate, Pesoul and Pendut embody the very soul of the exceptional terroir Terrasses du Larzac.

We have looked for the perfect balance, the harmony in this duality. Without compromising, we have created Pesoul and Pendut, two very different souls yet indivisible and symbiotic.

THE HANGING LOUSE PARCEL

Picture an exceptional parcel located on the foothills of the Larzac. This very peculiar tiny piece of land is called “Pesoul-Pendut” because of the daunting local weather. “Pesoul-Pendut” means “hanging louse”, the locals explaining that at this very location, because of 200 days a year of mistral, only a louse could hang on tight. This micro-parcel has always given extremely refined juices. Similarly to the philosophy of the domaine based on balance, we pushed the meticulousness to the maximum by giving a very special care to this singular parcel and decided to propose 2 cuvées produced only on exceptional years.

THE STRENGTH OF THE PLANTS

On this parcel of rare unspoilt beauty, we have chosen to work our soils and plants the most naturally possible. Operations on the vines represent a huge amount of work by hand. We use methods from organic and biodynamic farming (camomile, nettle, horsetail) to strengthen and energize the plants. Grapes are hand-harvested with a meticulous sorting of the bunches. With this work of great meticulousness, we strive to preserve the essence of this land, this vegetal legacy inspiring us each day a little bit more.

TWO SOULS,
ONE SYMBIOSIS

Pesoul and Pendut are born of a reflection: how to reflect all the richness and diversity of a terroir in a single wine ? Of course, you understood it was impossible for us to demonstrate all the greatness of this terroir in one wine… Hence we made two. Pesoul & Pendut are two complementary and indivisible visions of the sacred fruits born of this famous parcel. As two brothers, two soulmates, they share this noble heritage, but each one has followed its path, shaped by Nature and traced by the strength of the elements.

Two distinct souls joining as one.

THE ART OF TIME

If Nature does things well, Time sublimates them.

3 years…This much time was needed to tame the ardent passion of these terroir wines, to channel this primitive energy. This much time was needed to reach the perfect alchemy between authenticity and refinement, between concentration and freshness. True culmination of our quest for balance, Pesoul and Pendut, together, symbolize this sacred link between Men and their environment, so very strong and weak at the same time.
