La Petite Baigneuse Just Ciel


On the border between Roussillon and Corbières, in the heart of the Maury appellation, is the Domaine de la Petite Baigneuse . Philippe Wies, accompanied by his wife Céline, settled at the end of the 2000s, on the superb Maury shale terroirs, at an altitude of 350 meters with breathtaking views of the big blue sea.

Surrounded by scrubland and protected by an environment of cliffs, the 14 hectares of vines benefit from a Mediterranean climate tempered by the wind and maritime inlets. Organic since the beginning of the adventure, the Petite Baigneuse estate also practices biodynamics and only works the soil very little. Some plowing is then carried out with a tractor and a tracker so as not to overturn the horizons. Not far from Calce’s friends in the people of La Nouvelle Donne , and Domaine Jean-Philippe Padié , Philippe Wies is today an essential figure in the world of natural wines in the south of France.

“Juste Ciel”, a wine that calls for summer, fresh grilled fish, marinated supions, sea urchins, carpaccio de Saint Jacques…. In short, “La Petite Baigneuse” delivers here a wine to be enjoyed by the poolside with a Mediterranean meal thanks to its delicacy, its freshness and its notes of candied fruits. A very nice white wine to share with a nice meal.
