Domaine Cebene is known for their outstanding wine Faugères, but owner/winemaker Brigitte Chevalier has a little secret vineyard about 8 miles from the Mediterranean. In an obscure location in the commune of Corneilhan, the vineyard is a bit out of the norm for this part of the Languedoc - old vines Grenache planted on sandy soil like some of the greatest wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Ex Arena, meaning “out of the sand,” is a cuvée that Brigitte makes from Grenache vines planted on sandy soils that are nearly 40m deep in a place just 20km from the Mediterranean. Brigitte adds a small amount of Mourvedre, to add a bass note to this blend. Notes of wild strawberries, blackberries and rose garden in its medium to full-bodied, elegant, seamless personality. With ultra-fine tannin, gorgeous purity and no hard edges, it is at it’s drinking prime now.
