About this product
The 30-hectare Domaine de Majas is located to the west of the Roussillion in the village of Caudies de Fenouilledes and is owned by Agnes et Alain Carrere who employed Lutte Raisonnee ('reasoned agriculture') for many years but in 2007 decided to become fully biodynamic, and to that end employed Domaine Matassa's Tom Lubbe, one of southern France's leading biodynamic wine makers. The vines are planted on clay-limestone soil at an altitude of 350-400 metres above sea level and grapes grown include Carignan, Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet Franc for the reds, and for the whites, Macabeu, Chardonnay and Rolle (aka Vermentino). The grapes are handpicked, very little sulphur is used and only natural yeasts are employed during fermentation. Domaine de Majas Blanc Cotes Catalanes, organic wine, Macabeu, Rolle (Vermentino), concrete vats, minerals and texture, savoury herbs and lovely stone fruits, pleasing white wine. This delicious white from the French borders of Catalonia is grippy and tangy with lime peel, herbs and refreshing stone fruit flavours. A great value and versatile white from this often overlooked region of France.
