EMILIEN JEAN WINEMAKER
Émilien Jean is the son of a winegrower from Marmandais. After studying viticulture/oenology, he worked with other wine designations (Bordeaux, Côtes-du-Rhône, Languedoc, Loire Valley and Australia), often with winemakers using biodynamic methods.
With a heightened awareness of organic agriculture, he decided to go back to the family estate in 2016, taking over 12 acres of vines that will now be cultivated and transformed using organic techniques.
The Domaine is located on the hillsides of the left bank of the Garonne in the commune of Cocumont, in the Côtes-du-Marmandais designation. It is composed of old vines planted over 30 years ago, namely Malbec, Cabernet-Franc, Abouriou and Merlot for the reds and Sauvignon for the whites. The terroirs are gravelly clay as well as a mixture of clay and lime.
Respect for the soil and biodiversity allows them to produce premium grapes, which are all harvested by hand. The Domaine is committed to creating fresh and highly taut wines that reflect its terroirs.
