Under the name « gems », we refer to unsung producers who make admirable wines due to their excellent vineyards and their own talent.

These wines are always produced in very small amounts, in vineyards maintained as gardens by gifted and meticulous wine-growers. Even if they do not make the headlines of magazines, they highly deserve to be discovered and tasted for their exemplary quality.

    Oenologist by training, Xavier Copel undertook in 1996 to enhance the great terroirs of the South-West by creating the "Primo Palatum" brand, with the help of renowned producers in each appellation such as Château Le Cèdre (Cahors), Domaine de Cauhapé (Jurançon), etc. After 12 vintages, he decided to put an end to this adventure, which was acclaimed on all sides.

    Since 2016, it has been back under its own brand "Xavier Copel" with a selection extended to wines from Bordeaux and Spain. And always the same qualitative ambition: partnership with only one winegrower per appellation, selection of parcels of old vines in native grape varieties, sweet vinification, "grand cru" ageing in Burgundy barrels.

    Here there is no blockbuster, but wines of superior elegance, representative of their appellation, with particular attention to aromatic purity and tannic finesse. Already included in the Bettane&Desseauve guide "carefully selected, elegant, charming wines, whose only defect may be the small quantity produced".

    Grape variety: 100% malbec

    Unique plot, old malbec vines planted on a soil of siderolithic limestone near Cahors. Certified organic viticulture.
