Julian Biscarrat and brother-in-law Sebastian are young men on a mission. They love the things that others hate and in this part of the world that means they love the gobelet! Yes those stumpy, low yielding, backbreaking old vines, predominantly of grenache, are the things that light their fire. It's the perfect fruit that these vines offer up, so sympathetically handled in the winery, that enable the boys to craft precision wines with profound clarity of flavour, freshness and minerality.
