    • Organic IGP Ariège wine: Discover the wine of the Coteaux of Engraviès


      Thomas Piquemal invites you to discover his great red wines produced on the Domain of Engraviès in Vira, not far from Mirepoix. Independent winegrower, Thomas takes care of the entire process of creating his wines, from the seed to the sale of the bottles! Planting, maintenance of the vine, harvesting, vinification, ageing, bottling and sale, there is no shorter path between the vine and its wine.

      It was in 2011, after his studies and 6 years spent in Burgundy learning his trade, that he joined the Domain of Engraviès. He will acquire it in 2014 and has been developing since then, great wines from Ariège, according to the IGP. 8 hectares of vines are cultivated, out of the 75ha that make up the appellation.

      The wines of Domaine of Engraviès are 100% organic and labeled. Since the plot was created in 1998, they have been grown this way. Thomas is a winemaker who takes great care of his vines, that's how good wine is made! He selects plots to make the most of the 3 grape varieties he works on the estate: Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. He makes his own blends to offer lovers of good wines 5 to 6 cuvées, all different but with the same quality requirements. The maintenance of the plots is done with care, because in organic farming, it is easier to prevent than to cure. The sizes are reasoned and the plowing in the difficult plots is done by horse. The harvest is entirely done by hand and to promote the intense expression of this generous terroir, he proceeds to vatting by gravity. He wants to transform grapes into wine as naturally as possible and for this he works with indigenous yeasts, under temperature control. For ageing, he favors old barrels to avoid flavoring the wine with new wood tannins. Bottling is done on site, approximately 2 years after aging.

      The Coteaux d'Engraviès is 5 regular red cuvées and 1 rosé, which you can buy directly from the producer by visiting and tasting at the estate:

      Fleur de Cailloux (a spicy wine, perfect with meat), Orchidée (a more flowery wine but still with spicy notes), Roc des Maillols (a blend of 3 grape varieties, complex and powerful), Fount Cassat (perfect with red meats, a wine of character), Esprit des Cimes (a gem! wine with concentrated aromas, with a good length, perfect for noble meats such as duck breast, lamb…).

    A wonderful vinyard managed with care and knowledge. No wonder the organic wines are so good. We really enjoyed our tour of the vineyards. I'll be honest, I thought it might be boring, but Thomas is entertaining and brings knowledge of lots of different aspects of the land and work, so that it is engaging throughout. Of course, finishing with a wine tasting always helps!
