ABOUT DOMAINE DE L’ILE

2020 was a relatively warm and humid year. Winter, and especially November, was particularly rainy and stormy, providing the soil good water resources. In this vein, Spring favoured the growth of vines. Whilst the summer was particularly hot along the coast, the estate’s vineyards were protected from the heatwave thanks to easterly winds, bringing moisture. These weather conditions, along with rigorous pruning, harmonious flowering and careful supervision of plots led to a high quality of fruit, with generous berries. This results in fine and delicate, fresh and lively wines, far from being over-concentrated or excessive. The Grenache are exceptionally aromatic and pure, just as the Tibouren, which are amongst the first grapes harvested and vinified. The coloured Syrah develop their typical spicy aroma; the Mourvèdre are sophisticated, combining subtlety and strength. Delicate at the time of harvest, the Cinsault expressed their full potential after settling. Finally, the Rolle were harvested in two stages. The harvest on 20th August brings targeted, fresh juice with a great tension. The following days lead to more dense fruits, which will bring a whole new dimension to the blending. A quite unique year full of promise.

THE ISLAND EXPRESSION OF THE FINE WINES FROM PROVENCE

Porquerolles, an island. Cast off the ordinary. Even ashore, sea is always present, as the freshness of the spray forms a blissful union with the scents of the pine grove. The historic vineyard is bathed in light and derives its distinctive taste from the glistening crust of the thousand-year-old shales, on which the tender night sprinkles dew drops. Now owned by CHANEL, Domaine de l’Ile produces wine formed by island soil, loving sun and invigorating wind.

A FAMILY AND AN ISLAND

François-Joseph Fournier bought the island as a wedding gift for his beautiful young wife, Sylvia. He spent his life dedicated to turning the island into a paradise. Over the years, it passed down to their great grandson, Sébastien Le Ber.

A PRESERVED NATURAL SPACE

The island of Porquerolles and the sea surrounding it are protected, listed areas. Lying in the heart of a protected national park, Domaine de l’Ile follows agro-ecological initiatives and preserves biodiversity. Thanks to Sébastien Le Ber’s hard work, in 2015 the vineyards were certified organic. And in 2019, after many fulfilling years as a wine producer, Sébastien is entrusting this heritage to CHANEL, thereby opening a new chapter in the story of Domaine de l’Ile.
