Award-winning Chapelle de Novilis from the Languedoc-Roussillon, is a 1200-year old Domaine, producing IGP Coteaux d'Ensérune wines from 25-30 year-old vines. With 15 hectares of vineyards, the estate benefits from a microclimate as a result of its proximity to the sea, 15km to the south and the Caroux mountains in the Haut-Languedoc, 50km to the north. This helps to mollify the heat of the summer sun, enabling the grapes to retain sufficient acidity. Soils are mainly limestone and clay with rainfall typically in spring and autumn. The winery is in the process of fully converting to organic winemaking and earlier this year I had the pleasure of trying their Néus white 2015 (already organic) and their Évolus red 2013. Having been hugely impressed by both these wines (see the review on my old Facebook site for more details - link to new FB site below). I was delighted to be sent two earlier vintages from the Néus range to taste.
