Our feet crunched through layers of dry oak leaves as we climbed a pebbly path towards the vineyards behind the farmhouse. Roots go deep here. Not just the tall oaks and squat vines, but families too.

I walked the vineyards at Mas de Libian with Hélène Thibon, but it was her father Jean-Pierre that greeted me when I arrived. Hélène’s sister Catherine was out front with Bambi the horse, ploughing the sandier plots.

Later, we tasted in the winery with Hélène’s son Aurélien. Three generations of a much longer line; the Thibon family bought this estate in 1670.

{“content”:”<p>This sunny, pastoral spot in St-Marcel-d’Ardèche, the northern limit of the <strong><a href="https://www.decanter.com/wine/wine-regions/southern_rhone/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">southern Rhône</a></strong>, has been inhabited for much longer than this. They’ve found Roman artefacts in the fields, and even older remains. It’s a warm place with several water sources, ideal for nourishing plants – and people.</p>
<h3>Connection, transmission and nourishment</h3>
<p>The French word <em>paysan</em> doesn’t have a direct translation into English. The closest we have is peasant, but <em>paysan</em> doesn’t have the same negative connotations – quite the opposite. <em>Paysan</em> refers to someone that understands the countryside, its ways and its produce – things to be admired in a country so enamoured with food. It’s a word that came up often as I talked to Hélène Thibon at her estate.</p>
<p><div class="ad-container ad-container--mobile"><div id="post-inline-2" class="ipc-advert"></div></div></p>
<p>Although her father comes from ‘the chemical generation,’ says Hélène, he never used artificial products on this land. Thanks to his ‘bon sens paysan,’ Mas de Libian has always been <strong><a href="https://www.decanter.com/wine/organic/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">organic</a></strong>. In 2000, they moved to <strong><a href="https://www.decanter.com/learn/biodynamic-wines-explained-472503/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">biodynamics</a></strong>, since ‘organics didn’t nourish us enough,’ she says.</p>

<p>They nourish others too. At 25ha, the domaine is big enough to receive visitors through the <strong><a href="https://wwoof.org.uk/#:~:text=WWOOF%20was%20founded%20in%201971,to%20the%20ecological%20movement%20worldwide." target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer">WWOOF programme</a></strong> (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms), a network that facilitates homestays on farms, offering free lodging, board and training in return for help with daily tasks.</p>
<div class="ad-container ad-container--mobile"><div id="post-inline-3" class="ipc-advert"></div></div>
<p>‘Our main aim is to transmit,’ says Hélène.</p>
<p>As well as wine they produce olives, vegetables, grains and honey, and they help young winemakers learn their craft so they can strike out on their own.</p>
<div class="ad-container ad-container--mobile"><div id="post-inline-4" class="ipc-advert"></div></div>
<p>Transmission of ideas, both practical and intellectual, is a family trait. Hélène’s grandfather, Gustave Thibon (1903-2001) was nominated for the Nobel Prize for Literature four times for his philosophical works. During World War II, he hosted fellow philosopher Simone Weil at Mas de Libian.</p>
<p>Hélène’s father read the poetry of Persian polymath Omar Khayyam to her from the age of six. Their exceptional <strong><a href="https://www.decanter.com/wine/grape-varieties/grenache-garnacha/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Grenache</a></strong>-based cuvée Khayyam is named after him.</p>

<h3>The wines of Mas de Libian</h3>
<p>Like all their reds, they pick before the grapes get too ripe, and destem before fermenting with <strong><a href="https://www.decanter.com/learn/wine-yeast-45474/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">natural yeasts</a></strong>. <strong><a href="https://www.decanter.com/learn/what-does-maceration-mean-ask-decanter-442910/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Macerations</a> </strong>are brief; five days for their Vin de Pétanque, and up to 21 days for their <strong><a href="https://www.decanter.com/wine/grape-varieties/mourvedre-grape-varieties/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Mourvèdre</a></strong>-dominant La Calade.</p>
<p>Extraction is light, and the wines are aged in large, old oak barrels or concrete tanks.</p>
<p>There are some delicious whites made in this southern tip of the Ardèche, and Mas de Libian’s Cave Vinum is one of the best. The rosé, Buve Z&#8217;en, is fresh and tense.</p>
<p>The southern Rhône is a place of great abundance; sometimes the skill of the winemaker is knowing when less is more. These are generous wines but there are no excesses; the result is a range of wines with great clarity and energy that aren’t tiring to drink.</p>
<p>They aren’t huge in structure or concentration, but nonetheless they age well; the 2013 Khazan and 2011 La Calade are still delicious, and there’s still no hurry to drink them.</p>
<p>All the wines are bottled as either Vin de France or Côtes-du-Rhône. Some could be bottled under the Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Saint-Andéol appellation, but they choose not to.</p>
<div class="injection"></div>
<p>Perhaps these relatively lowly appellations are one reason these wines aren’t better known – or higher in price.</p>
<p>Or perhaps it’s because the Thibon family doesn&#8217;t market the wines as energetically as they could.</p>
<p>But my advice is to seek them out, as these are wines that feel nourishing to drink. Not just for the body, but for the soul.</p>
