The vines from Domaine de Majas are located in the Fenouillèdes area between 350-400 metres above sea level, on clay limestone and schist soils. The estate is run by Agnes and Alain Carrere, who aim for as little intervention as possible, influenced by their time spent with Tom Lubbe (of Domaine Matassa). The wines are grown organically (certified since 2001), fermented with native yeasts in cement vats and bottled without filtration or fining, resulting in freshness of fruit and lively minerality. Sulphites are kept to a minimum. Their wines are characterful, approachable and great value.
