One of the first visitors to his winery saw the isolation of this spot and termed it “le bout du monde,” the end of the world. The vistas of the Pyrénées-Orientales mountain ranges framing the vines will completely take your breath away. Edouard says many days when he’s laboring away in the vines under the hot sun and gets fatigued, all he has to do is pause and take a look around him at the natural beauty to become completely revitalized. - Jenny & Francois
Edouard Lafitte's is known for using carbonic maceration to demonstrate startling finesse and terrior from his position at le bout du monde - "the end of the world." Tam-Tam is made with hand harvested Syrah and fermented whole cluster at low temperature in fiberglass tanks for 3 weeks total. The wine is aged in 7 year old barrels for roughly 11 months. Bottled with minimal sulfur, it is unfined and unfiltered.
