An unexpected story of success

The story of Domaine Majas began with Gérard Gauby, as he was one of the first winemakers in the south of France to prove that great terroir wines could be made in an area that many believed was only suitable for making mass-produced wine for supermarkets.

In a small village called Caudiès Fenouillèdes in the Pyrenees, winemaking couple Alain and Agnès Carrère run Domaine Majas. Together with Tom Lubbe as an advisor from Domaine Matassa, which is not so far away, they converted the entire farm completely to organic viticulture.

The winery is situated at an altitude of 400m and is very well ventilated even in summer, the reason being the north-east wind called Tramuntana. Their cuvées, some of which grow from 130-year-old vines on limestone and slate soils, have a tremendous freshness coupled with a vibrant, salty minerality.
