Domaine Les Haut De Mercurol, owned by reknown Rhône winemaker Yves Cheron, channels the unwavering strength of medieval history. The vines lay adjacent to the last standing vestige of a castle that stood in 1064. A panoramic view of rolling hills and the Cèvennes mountains surrounds the vineyard, inviting you to feel the history of the battles that once took place on these very grounds.
