The Story

Magalas, next to Pézenas, is truly in the heart of wine-growing Languedoc, it is a very old village with shaded alleys that breathe the southern art of living. Arriving here they were lucky enough to come across remarkable and expressive terroirs - mostly sandstone soils giving aromatic wines with a very fine texture. They have converted this old vineyard to organic farming, the grapes are harvested manually, conveyed to the cellar in small containers, the sorting is done in the vineyard and the vinifications are very classic and very simple - fermentations in indigenous yeasts little extraction; the aging in Burgundy barrels of several wines in order to reveal the potential of each cuvée without marking the wines. The result is elegant wines that are expressive and above all that represent their origins.
