Brise Cailloux is 100% Syrah from degraded granite and silty clay soils from the lowest section of the "Les Arlettes" vineyard.

Brise Cailloux is hand harvested, destemmed by hand, fermented in concrete eggs then matured in old 500L French oak for 18 months.


Matthieu Barret is a Biodynamic-certified vigneron based in the high hills in Cornas, Northern Rhône. After taking over the family’s vineyard (planted by his Grandfather just after WWII), Matthieu converted to organics (Ecocert-certified) in 2001 and biodynamics (Biodyvin-certified) in 2002.

With a goal to make “100% grape wines” Matthieu makes his wines in a sympathetic manner that allows him to express site above all else. The vineyard is based on very steep, very old eroded granite soils on a base of Jurassic limestone and clay marl at a peak elevation of 350m AMSL. All wines are hand-harvested, destemmed by hand and fermented in concrete eggs. The wines are never filtered or fined nor are they racked (which would require additional sulphur) – so always benefit from decanting.
