Mas des Colibris is a biodynamic domaine in the Causse d'Aumelas region of Languedoc run by former professional rugby player Sebastien Galtier. Sebastien has 12 hectares in total, all farmed organically since 1999 and surrounded by olive groves, pine forest and scrubland. Grapes are hand-harvested, fermented with indigenous yeasts and Sebastien uses biodynamic preparations to stimulate the biological life of the soil and strengthen the vine and its natural defences.

Roc is Sebastien's inky and concentrated old vine Carignan from a 70 year old plot, fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged for 12 months in old oak. Spicy tobacco, blackcurrant and plum notes with surprising freshness and elegance on the long palate.
