North of Saint-Jean de Muzols is the parcel locally called Pitrou from where Dard & Ribo harvest the Syrah grapes to make this iconic and extraordinary red wine. The grape variety comes from old vines grown organically and planted on slopes with decomposed granite soils. Vinified respecting the work done in the vineyard, as these two vignerons always do: direct pressing, indigenous yeasts, maturation in 500 and 600 liter barrels. Blended in August and bottled in September of the following year, without fining or filtration, and zero added sulfur.

Three Senses
A complex and exuberant nose of ripe fruit, pear compote, Mirabelle plum and elderberry, pepper, violet and rose as an elegant conclusion. On the palate this wine has dense juice and minerality, with lovely bitter notes and a lingering finish.

Dard & Ribo

Dard e Ribo

A great duo the one of Jean Rene Dard and Francois Ribo formed in the early eighties. The two colleagues started with a small plot of land of just one hectare in the village of Mercurol. It started right away with today's ideas but very avant-garde times. In 1984 their first vintage came out and already from that vintage fermentations are spontaneous, sulfur dioxide almost totally absent, there is no temperature control and only copper and sulfur are used in the vineyard. Basically a single goal that is stubbornly pursued today with the same principles: to enhance the terroir with easy-drinking wines, because wine must be drunk.
