The model at Mas de Libian is the farm is a self-sustaining environment instead of a production unit. It’s an idea that resonates through the wines, which ooze all the natural wealth and charm of this great region. The vines are cultivated and hand-harvested, the soils hoed by hand in the spring and Catherine Thibon ploughs roughly one-third of the vineyards’ clay-limestone terroir with the help of Nestor and Bambi, the estates two Franche-Comté workhorses. The vineyards classified as Côte-du-Rhône Villages are composed of large round river rocks (galets roulés) and red clay and, as such, are worked by tractor. 

The hallmark of each wine from Mas de Libian is silky, low yield concentration parried by vibrancy and vitality of fruit; these are pure, brightly fruited and perfumed wines that clearly reflect an intuitive and honest dedication to the Domaine’s stony terroir and gnarled old goblet vines. All the factors outlined above, and the quality of the mesmerising wines that arise, place Mas de Libian as one of the most exciting addresses of the Southern Rhône.

Mas de Libian Cotes du Rhone Khayyam is named in honour of the 11th century Persian poet, philosopher, booze-hound and mathematician, Omar Khayyam. This vibrant, supple bottling comes entirely from a single highland plot which is above the house at the top of the Saint Marcel d'Ardèche plateau. The site is littered with galets roulés and was planted between 1960 and 1980—mostly to Grenache, with 10% Syrah and 15% Mourvèdre. Some 30% of the fruit was aged in large casks on lees, bringing a seductive, supple and layered texture to the bright, cleansing structure. The breezy character of the vintage shines through here; this is fresh and vibrant, brimming with purity of fruit and crunchy energy. It is also charming and perfumed, with bright blue fruits and touches of pepper and liquorice
