Château de Majoulière
The wine castle “Château de Majoulière” was created in 2007 fulfilling the dream of the family Reher – Van Baelen. Wine has been produced at this location for centuries. The southern aspect and gently sloping terrain, in combination with a soil rich in loam and limestone provide the ideal growing conditions. The vines, most of which have been established for 35 years or more, are composed of Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties. These have been treated with a great deal of care and attention giving enormous potential to produce superior wines.
At Château de Majoulière only the finest AOP wines are produced. The soil is treated in an ecological manner without the use of herbicides, pesticides or man – made fertilizers. The grapes are harvested with the utmost care.
For the production of red wines, the Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties are used, resulting in a strong, structured and harmonious wine. The rosé wines are made from Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah producing a supple and fruity wine. In April 2009 Rolle (Vermentino) and Sauvignon Blanc have been planted for the introduction of white wines.
Following the process of triage (selection of grapes by hand) and removal of the stems, a gentle pressure is applied to the grapes allowing the wine juice to be released through gravity, thus giving an excellent result.
Both red and white wines complete the process in French oak barrels of superior quality. This traditional process from ‘grape to glass’ guarantees splendid wines that go well with fish, poultry and meat dishes.
