<<< the complexity of the soils, and the proximity to La Montagne Noire. At the heart of Domaine de Courbissac are 90 year old Grenache 70 year-old Carignan and 70 year old Cinsault, as well as some solidly middle-aged Syrah and Mourvedre around 40 years-old. Farmed biodynamically since 2002, Reinhard has expanded the size of the vineyards, now totaling 30 hectares, by planting some additional Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre. At the end of 2013, Reinhard partnered with the talented Brunnhilde Claux, a young vigneronne with an impressive resumé. Brunnhilde got her start at Domaine Gauby where she learned how to handle the natural exuberance of grapes grown in the generous Mediterranean climate. From there she moved on to Terroir al Limit in the Priorat where she worked with Dominik Huber for three vintages before Reinhard tapped her to lead Domaine de Courbissac.
