Like the idea of a wet stone: sometimes cool, salty, slightly smoky and mostly a tight, grippy texture on the palate. Rather a mouthfeel than aromatics.

A success story that came about by chance

The history 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 reserved for the production of mass-produced wine Supermarkets are suitable.

In a small village called Caudiès Fenouillèdes in the Pyrenees, the winemaker couple Alain and Agnès Carrère manage the Domaine Majas. Together with Tom Lubbe as a consultant from the not so far away Domaine Matassa, they converted the entire operation to organic viticulture.

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