Producer profile

Fond Cyprès

Fond Cyprès, nestled in the heart of the Languedoc-Roussillon region in Southern France, is located in Escales, marking the northern frontier of the Corbières AOC. The domain encompasses 15 hectares of vines, a verdant enclave embraced by woodlands and olive groves.

Laetitia Ourliac and Rodolphe Gianesini, the vintners at the helm, embody a dedication to sustainable viticulture. Their ethos is manifested in the certified organic practices that govern their fields, ensuring a harmonious coexistence with the natural milieu.

In the sequestered realm of their cellar, low-intervention practices are the guiding principle. This approach seeks to ensure that the wine, from vine to bottle, is a sincere reflection of its terroir. It’s a narrative in which the subtle whispers of nature aren't overshadowed by the hand of the maker.

Fond Cyprès has gradually garnered a reputation as a noteworthy producer within the Languedoc-Roussillon wine scene. Their commitment to organic and natural wine practices positions them at the confluence of traditional viticulture and contemporary eco-conscious ethos.

The wines emanating from Fond Cyprès are not merely beverages, but a testimony to a philosophy that cherishes and respects the land. Each bottle encapsulates the essence of Escales, offering a nuanced exploration of the Corbières AOC terroir.
