Mas Bruguière (Xavier Bruguière)
The Bruguière family have been making wine in Pic Saint-Loup since the Revolution and the 20-hectare plus estate is now run by Xavier and his wife, Marjorie. Mas Bruguière has been at the forefront of Pic Saint Loup’s rise to cru status. The classic Mas Bruguière red is called ‘l’Arbouse’ and is named after the strawberry tree that flourishes in the region. The beauty of Xavier’s wines is their simplicity and restraint and it is what hasn’t been done in the cellar here that is significant.
