From his family’s eight hectares in the rugged, windswept, bone-dry Languedoc terroir of Corbières, Jean-Baptiste Gibert produces wines of unapologetic earthiness and character using purely organic viticultural methods and next to no technology in the winemaking process. Gibert’s distinctive “Rosé des Glacières” is pure Syrah, harvested by hand from old vines in rocky limestone soil, and made via saignée (bledoff juice from the harvest). Standing in stark contrast to the ultra-pale-pink direct-press exemplars of modern commercial rosé, Faillenc Sainte Marie’s is ripe, juicy, and rich in color, reveling in its evocation of this sun-baked terrain.
