The 30-ha Domaine de Majas is located to the west of the Roussillon in the village of Caudies de Fenouillèdes. Fully biodynamic since 2007, with Domaine Matassa's Tom Lubbe as consultant. Organic Rolle, Macabeu and Carignan Blanc vines are planted on clay-limestone soil at an altitude of 350-400 m above sea level; they are fermented wild and see just a shadow of sulphur. Salted almonds and hazelnuts glide along a sizeable slick of herbal lees, lifted by a crystalline citrus. White peach, green fig, dried thyme, medicinal-hued white cherry appear on the medium body before mineral salts linger on the finish. Exactly what you want to drink right now with grilled anchovies or white wine and garlic mussels.
