Capestang: between sea and mountain.
The Domaine is located at Capestang, a village bordering the Canal du Midi in the South of France, in Languedoc, a unique region where the sun always shines.
Christine and Francois GIMIÉ has enthusiastically decided to perpetuate and give a second life to the family estate. Over 25 hectares of vineyards, the southern grape varieties (Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Mourvèdre for the red wines and Vermentino, Roussanne and Viognier for the white ones) combine without complex the traditional grape varieties (Cabernet, Merlot and Chardonnay).
The improvement of wine-making practices, control of yields and work in respect of the soil may summarize the quality approach in which our Domaine is committed, thus perpetuating the noble tradition of "wine-grower work".
This is with passion that Francois GIMIÉ, oenologist, has decided to bring his expertise to his wines.
In constant quest for quality and creativity, he develops southern wines of grape varieties and beautiful blend, fruity, elegant, supple and warm.
Matured grape harvest, custom-made winemaking and aging in barrels are the key to the transformation of the fruit into perfectly balanced sunny wines.
