France Crispeels is a rising star who will undoubtedly go far and work her way up to the first place. This slip of a woman is- as her name suggests- of Belgium origin. She has piercing eyes and unfailing confidence when she speaks. Her first vintage was 2007. Since then some parcels have been purchased on a regular basis and vines replanted. She also regularly attends International wine fairs. This 9-hectare domain shows breathtaking energy. Hard to say whether such creativity comes from the harsh Pyrenees climate or anything else ? --- The single-varietal wines as well as the blends are made from sound grapes that give racy juices bearing a strong resemblance to this female winemaker. She received AB organic certification in 2009 and since then the natural style of winemaking has imparted a clear and frank character to the wine as well as real freshness reflecting the wide range of schist and gneiss soils. The tramontana blows hard in the Agly Valley. By the way, what a superb region !
