DOMAINE D ISNARD

Wine-maker since 1760

 

THE ESTATE WINERY

A family history since 1760

For 8 generations, my family has been cultivating a thousand-year-old wealth, the vine.

On the sunny slopes between the sea and the mountains, on an exceptional terroir composed of Sandstone pebbles, I practice my passion, wine making. Located at the gates of Montpellier in Languedoc, between the Lez and the Salaison, a terrace of sandstone pebbles bears a small vineyard of exception, the terroir of the Méjanelle.

The pebble soil is similar to that of the Châteauneuf du Pape terroir.

The cartulary of Maguelone mentions the vineyards belonging to the Méjanelle by the bishops which produced strong and full-bodied wines with a lot of spirit. They were called the wines of Grés (sandstone in English).

My vineyard is mainly located on the lands of Montpellier, but also on Jacou, Saint Aunès, Castelnau le lez, Le Crès, for a surface of 40 Ha.

The grape varieties are Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Merlot for the reds, Chardonnay, Viognier for the whites, Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah for the rosés.

We are happy to share with you our passion through our wines, we wish you a good tasting!
