Located on the littoral zone between Montpellier and Nîmes, on a 135 acre wine estate, all in one piece, the land of the Domaine de Moulines allows the cultivation of a great assortment of grape varieties, from Chardonnay to Cabernet-Sauvignon, as well as Viognier, Merlot, Shiraz, Grenache or even Marselan and Vermentino, the last two having been set up more recently. Thanks to its tempered Mediterranean climate and its clay-limestone soil, the vines benefit from an excellent sea humidity in the summer.
The high vine trellising allow a greater foliar surface which will thus be exposed to the sun. The thinning out as well as the pricking of the vines promotes a better ventilation of the bunches. Therefore, these elements help us in the making of wines with supple tannins, fruitier aromas, and a great richness on the palate.
