Domaine du Seminaire comprises 250 acres in the hills above the village of Valreas, in the foothills of the Alps. Hervé Pouizin is the fourth generation to farm this land; he and his wife, Mathilde have preserved the self-sufficient estate mostly as it was a century ago, with one key exception: they converted everything to organic farming. Fermenting their wines in the same huge concrete tanks since 1938, the couple takes an old-school approach to winemaking and uses no oak. They produce high-toned, bright, floral wines, in keeping with their region and elevation, bottled early to preserve the fruit and with minimal sulfur. Their Valreas is a classic example of the appellation: ripe cherries lead the way, joined by hints of thyme, bay leaf and dried spices for complexity, and the is concentrated and creamy in texture, with tannins that turn silky on the finish.
