Domaine de la Bastide, located in Visan in the southern Rhône, is owned by Bernard and Nicole Boyer. Bernard worked for over 20 years as an agricultural engineer, and in 1989 he and Nicole founded their estate. The family lives in a fortified farmhouse built by the Templar knights in the middle ages! The building in which Vincent’s family resides is surrounded by old mourvèdre vines and fig and cherry trees. Today their son Vincent runs the estate with his wife Stephanie who is also an oenologist. They are in the process of converting to organic viticulture.
Les Figues is reference to the massive, aged, fig tree which dominates the landscape of the main house on the estate. From the Southern Rhone, “Les Figues” Blanc is a luscious blend of 45% Viognier, 40% Roussanne, and 15% Clairette, grown in calcareous clay soils. Fifty percent (50%) of the wine is aged briefly in oak, then blended back into the remaining tank wine, just before bottling. The vineyards are in the process of being certified organic.
