Dom Des Escaravalles 750L les Sablier
Escaravailles means scarab, or beetle, in Occitan, the language of Provinçal France. It's also what they called the black-clad Catholic monks of the southern Rhône. So, that's what Jean-Louis Ferran named his domaine in 1953. His grandson, Gilles, grabbed the reigns in 1999, after finishing 1st in his class from the U. of Montpellier's oenology school.
