It all started in 2007 when we fell in love with some old Carignan vines (70-80 years old) facing due south and situated between Montpeyroux and Lagamas.
So, Amélie, a consultant in marketing and communication in the wine world, her brother, Sébastien, deputy to Alain Chabanon, and her husband Jérome, export manager for the Advini group, decided to share their skills to produce ‘THEIR WINE’, from the old Carignan.
Their dream came true and they harvested their first vintage in September 2007.
Since 2011 Amélie has dropped her consultancy work and devotes herself wholly to the Domaine. And Sébastien still rules the roost in their grand-father’s garage. Together they are creating five wines: two from historic Languedoc grapes (the Vieux Carignan in red and the Terret in white), and a luscious rosé, the Ribambelle of the Mas d’Amile.
In 2015, two new wines have emerged from the cellar: an AOP Languedoc-MONTPEYROUX and an AOP Terrasses du Larzac both blended from Grenache, Syrah and Carignan.
From the very beginning, work with the Domaine’s vines has been the most natural possible (respect for plants, the soil …), mostly by hand (harvesting, pruning, de-budding…) and always using organic agricultural products and procedures.
