Michaël Georget is based in the village of Laroque des Albères in Roussillon just north west of the city of Perpignan. Although only 32 years old he trained in biodynamics working with producers in Alsace (such as Jean Schaetzel from Domaine Martin Schaetzel) before searching for a place to practice all he had learned.
Here he tends his vineyards which include 3 hectares of 130 year old Carignan vines and a plot of 40 year old Macabeu vines as well as Grenache Blanc and Grenache Noir (90 years old). He also has some vines of Syrah, Grenache Gris and Mourvedre. This old vines Carignan displays both black and red fruits like blackberry, cherry gooseberry. It is complex, fresh, yet striking a well balance between tannin and acidity.
