Relatively new winemakers on the scene (their first vintage was in 2016), Bastien Baillet and his partner Céline Schuers settled in the Roussillon, in Saint Paul de Fenouillet, wedged between the Mediterranean and the snow capped Pyrenees.  Despite the baking heat of the region the vines are cooled by regular winds from the Mediterranean and mountains to keep the wines fresh and bursting with life.

Le Fleuve Rouge is from a single plot in Saint Paul de Fenouillet, Syrah and Carignan. The Carignan is grown as bush vines and the Syrah is trained (the only of La Bancale’s vines that are trained). The grapes are fermented whole bunch for 10 days before being pressed. The wine is then fermented and aged in fibre glass.
