Wines

Organic, ethical, straightforward, goofy and goofy wines ...

Why " ethical "? because we reason as best we can our practices. Work of the soil by the horse or the straddle. Manual harvest, no systemic, pesticide, herbicide in the vineyard. No input into the wines. Natural yeasts, no filtration, natural plugs, and very little SO2.

Why " francs "? Because a respectful intervention of the soil in the vineyard and the absence of oenological input in the vine, is essential for the expression of the terroir in the wine.

Why organic ? and above all bio-dynamic ? because it is an exciting and holistic approach to the way we work at the Old Chapel. Holistic in its human dimension (the pleasure of working and welcoming in the healthiest possible environment), vegetal, mineral, animal, and cosmic ...

All our wines have been certified Bio / Ecocert since 2013 and in bio-dynamie / Demeter since 2017.

Our wines are declined in their differences and characters:

  • The wines of friends with "Les Grands Blancs - Tradition", the Amuse-Gueules (dry white), the Tradition cuvée from Chateau de la Vieille Chapelle (red) and the "Grand Rosé"
  • The " high goods " with "Les Grands Blancs - Réserve (dry white)", the Réserve cuvée for Chateau de la Vieille Chapelle (red) and "Les Merlots de Baudet"
  • The " rebels" and natures from pre-phylloxera vines and forgotten grape varieties with the "Bouchalès Merlots" cuvée, the "Amis & Associés" cuvée.
