Domaine des Carabiniers

This is a 50 ha estate on the west bank of the Rhône not far from Châteauneuf-du- Pape. It is owned by the Leperchois family who originally came from Italy and started growing grapes here in the 1930s.

In the 70s and 80s Christian Leperchois greatly extended the domaine, built a winery and started selling wine in bottle. In the 1990s the domaine converted to organic viticulture achieving Ecocert certification in 1997. In the 2000s Christian’s children – Magali and Fabien – took over, becoming the fifth generation to run the estate. They increased the domaine to its current size and started the conversion to biodynamic viticulture leading to Demeter certification in 2007. All 50 ha are worked biodynamically. The name of the estate dates from the time of the Pope’s residence at nearby Avignon when his mounted guards were known as Carabinieri and had stables on the site of the winery. This is commemorated by the horse logo of the domaine. The majority of the vineyards are in Côtes du Rhône with 23.5 ha, followed by Lirac with 17.5 ha, then 4 ha in Tavel and the balance in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Pays d’Oc. Winemaking uses natural yeasts, no additives and with as little sulphur as possible – small amounts are added at bottling to some products but the aim is to reduce it further. Grape varieties are the Rhône standards, mainly Grenache and Syrah.

Vintage guide

The 2022 vintage looks to be excellent for the North and South of the region which both excelled in the hot conditions this year. The 2021 vintage has seen some good results particularly in the North where attractive, aromatic, elegant wines have been made. The wines from the 2020 vintage look to be a little fresher and more approachable in their youth than those of 2019 which is a high-quality vintage with yields on a par with 2018. Another good result along the valley in 2018, though the South had more disease problems to contend with, as mildew affected the thinner-skinned Grenache more than other varieties. Quality was high but the yields were down. An early harvest produced some intense wines in 2017 for both the North and the South of the region, though uneven flowering in both reduced yields considerably. 2016 in both Northern and Southern Rhône has produced excellent results, and the South has it by a whisker this year, the opposite of 2015. 2015 is terrific, particularly for the North’s Syrah, no problems and decent yields too. An ideal growing season, that was even hotter than 2003 in the daytime but with cooler nights and just enough rainfall to prevent problems in the vineyards. Both whites and reds are excellent. 2014 is not an easy vintage to generalise about but whites are super, reds are very pure with lovely aromatics, and, in the South, as in 2013, Syrah and Mourvèdre have done better than Grenache. In common with most of Europe, 2013 started late but a dry second half of the season resulted in some excellent wines particularly Syrah from the North.
