TERROIR DU MAS LLOSSANES
The initial foothills of the Pyrenees protect the 11 hectares of Mas Llossanes forming a unique island of vines at the exceptional altitude of 600 meters.
The estate was established in the 1940s, planted on shale soils and granite arenas. Such a terroir bestows its wines with great elegance, freshness and balance.
Six autochthonous varietals make up the mosaic of Llossanes: Carignan, Grenache, Syrah, Chenanson, Cinsault and Chasan.
A COUPLE OF PASSIONATE EXPERTS
Dominique and Solenn Génot managed a renowned biodynamic winery in Tuscany for over 10 years. The expertise of Dominique, agronomist and oenologist,
is perfectly complemented by the sommelier formation of Solenn. Passion for wine motivated the couple to leave their comfortable employment to tackle the challenge of creating their own domain in 2016. After a very selective research,
it is the remarkable terroir of Mas Llossanes that they chose to build their future.
A CULTURE IN BIODYNAMICS
Since our arrival, the vineyard has benefitted from organic and biodynamic viticulture. Chemical products are banned and the grapes are hand-harvested exclusively. In the cellar, we embrace the same philosophy, keeping sulphites at a minimum and limiting interventions as much as possible. We give our wines the time they need to refine.
All of these technical choices make it possible to pristinely express the personality of this magnificent terroir.
