75% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 5% Mouvedre. The syrah is aged in oak that has been used from two to five times and the Grenache, which is oxidative is aged in cement vats.
The estate has its roots in 1880, founded by Jeremy’s great-grandfather Louis Dupraz and grandfather Robert Dupraz. After working in computer science and commerce he came to winemaking, renaming the estate Domaine Dupraz in 2011 after expressing that he wanted to make wine with more specific traits of the terroir than his predecessors. At the foot of Granier the vines are forced to dig deep beneath the poor top soil for more fertile grounds. The estate averages 17-32 year old vines of Jacquere, Mondeuse, Malvasia, Roussette and Chardonnay covering approximately 10 hectares, with 5.6 hectares vinified by themselves harvested to the highest degree of care. Jeremy is the 7th generation to take up the wine making, aspiring to create wines to match his great-grandfather Luis while dabbling in other means of vinification that will express more truly the terroir he seeks to capture. Currently the estate is converting to organic75% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 5% Mouvedre. Their Sablet Tradition is completely de-stemmed before vinification, after which it is aged in cement vats. About a half of the grapes that go into the Cuvée Clemence stay in whole bunches for vinification; the exact amount depends on the maturity of the stems. The syrah that ends up in Clémance is aged in oak that has been used from two to five times; the Grenache, which is oxidative anyway, is aged in cement vats.
