Domaine Magellan is located in Magalas, very old village with shaded alleys that breathe the southern art of living, next to Pézenas : it is truly the heart of wine-growing Languedoc. Arriving here, Bruno Lafon was lucky enough to come across remarkable and expressive terroirs - mostly sandstone soils giving aromatic wines with a very fine texture. The result is elegant wines that are expressive and above all, represents the Burgundian origins of Bruno Lafon.

The story

This is a blend of Grenache and Syrah, two parcels in the Pézenas appellation area. It's a wine they're particularly fond of at Magellan because they planted these vines 20 years ago, on a plot that was just a pile of rocks - it was a huge job. This suggests that it is a place that has never seen chemicals for several decades.
