The producer

In 1996, Yves Falmet, originally from Champagne, acquired his vineyard in Languedoc. An extremely qualitative terroir in the Saint Chinian Appellation area.

The Domaine des TERRES FALMET was thus born following a thunderbolt for these magnificent hillsides which had been able to discover during his studies as an oenologist in the region.

In fact, no one had wanted these lands because of their relief, as the growing conditions there were harsh and perilous. The eastern part of the vineyard had already been abandoned, the rest would have inevitably followed.

A very difficult vineyard to cultivate for which he fought relentlessly to save it and create his own cuvées, the quality of which is now internationally recognized.

The wine

The "Aramon’ label is made entirely from this grape variety. Among his Carignan vines, the oldest in his vineyard at over 80 years old, there are still a few Aramon vines. This is because the custom at the time was to mix a few grape varieties within the same plot.

Aramon used to be one of the most ubiquitous grape varieties in Languedoc, but it has been almost eradicated in recent decades.

Like Cinsault, is has been completely discarded in favour of other grape varieties regionally.

However, in a quality site such as the Terres Falmet vineyard, when carefully grown, harvested at the peak of ripeness and skilfully vinted, it produces a beautiful, subtly tannic red wine that is fresh and fruity.
