terroirs from his native region,

the M. Chapoutier facilities with the utmost care and attention.

Domaine les Haute Cances
les Hautes Cances is a small family estate, with 17
hectares of vineyards situated on the slopes overlooking
the Côtes-du-Rhône Villages of Cairanne.
vineyards are a legacy of Anne-Marie
Astartís family, from a domaine her grandparents founded
in the 1890's.
When her family bequeathed her and her husband the
domaine in 1992, they had to decide whether to take
or sell, so they did the reasonable thing and enrolled
in the local winemaking school!
vineyards are certified agriculture biologique and
average about 50 years old, with several plots reaching
the grand old age of 100. Yields are deliberately kept
low so as to express the true terroir of the region.
All fruit is hand harvested, hand selected and completely
destemmed, and the wines are all estate bottled without
