Details

Viognier La Valiere Agrunelles, biodynamic wine, 100% Viognier, no intervention in cellar, fruity and aromatic but with a note of the earth. Fred Porro's 100% biodynamic viognier wine is a subtle and expressive example of this grape. From a very low yielding vineyard on a plateau around the town of Murles north of Montpellier, a vineyard which benefits from cooling winds in the evening thus helping maintain the natural acidity of the grape. The wine opens with notes of white peach and wild flowers and leads to a refreshing palate, not too rich and oily as Viognier can be, smooth, medium acidity and a subtle note of the earth on the back palate. A lovely glass of spring time white wine.


The story of Mas des Agrunelles is an incredible one. Frédéric Porro was an aspiring Motor-cross rider until an accident left him in a wheelchair. His disability led him to a new passion - wine - after his sister asked him to put together the wine list for he restaurant. From that moment on, he became devoted to the grape. Mas des Agrunelles came about from his collaboration with Stéphanie Ponson – owner of Mas Nicot – in 2005 near Murles in Languedoc. They usually say about it: 'we first met thanks to wine and now wine unites us'. The name of the estate comes from the fact that there are a lot of wild sloe trees around the vineyards and sloe is 'Agrunelles' in old occitan. The 18 hectares of vineyards are on a dozen of plots and the vines are planted on clay and limestone soils. Work is biodynamic in the vineyards with traditional methods of ploughing with horses and no chemicals at all.
