A terroir of excellence
Our Estate covers near 30 hectares, surrounding Béziers and Corneilhan. An exceptional landscape already planted by Romans centuries ago.
We have selected the best grapes varieties Languedoc can offer, Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre for our red wines, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Marsanne, Viognier, Sauvignon et Colombard for the white Parenthèse. Our wines are between 20 and 30 years old.
The importance of every small details
Convinced by the necessity and value of our environment, we choose organic viticulture and are Ecocert Certified since 2015.
As we are aware that every little details counts, our vines are grown in Cordon de Royat style, with grass cover every second row in order to preserve biodiversity in the soil. Harvests takes place early mornings in order to pick up grapes the coolest as possible and we make sure teams get freshly brewed morning coffee !
Grapes are then stored in cold rooms before going to pneumatic press.
A story founded on friendship
Domaine Parpalhol is before anything a story of 2 friends focused on a common passion for authentic wines and symbols of Languedoc treasures.
First, there is Julien. Following a winemaking scholarship in Montpellier, he takes over the family estate in 2006. He follows his father’s footstep, a local man who used to sell to the village cooperative. Julien learned with Jean Michel Alquier but also at Domaine Trevallon, a star from Provence.
Serge comes from the restaurant business. After 20 years abroad, his passion for wine comes true through several studies such as Wine University in Suze la Rousse in France, the famous Swiss Changins wine school and at last the WSET in 2015.
We aim to optimise our wineyard and its biodiversity. With humility, learning and patience, we are obsessed in improving every day.
With Sophie Brun’s help and advise, as she consults with some of the most famous Terrasse du Larzac estates, we search for the perfect balance and excellence in our wines to show the best our terroir can offer.
