Bruno Lafon: “Vine growing and wine are in my blood. With my native Burgundy now a part of my past, Magellan was self-liberating. It offered new terroirs, new grape varieties and new challenges. I got to know them and now make wines I enjoy that mirror both my culture and my second home."

This 2.5-hectare vineyard of Syrah and Grenache is located in the Pézénas viticultural area. The sandstone or silt from these Triassic soils is a natural wonder for growing vines. A cursory glance reveals stony ground which promotes drainage and prevents rainwater from standing, thereby providing a natural ally against vine disease. But the soil’s greatest strength is that it acts as an amazing source of coolness, protecting our vines against drought. Slightly acid, it produces flamboyant wines with extremely refined tannins. The vines are situated at the top of a hill, Grenache facing South and Syrah North, which means we can harvest both varieties at the same time.

The Syrah and Grenache are put in the same tank. Winemaking is traditional with no added yeast. Low-temperature fermentation enables good extraction, particularly at the start of fermentation. This technique allows us to achieve greater precision during the maturation phase.

Matured in 2-3-year-old Burgundy casks lasting 12 months, followed by 2 months’ ageing in concrete tanks.

Food pairing

Its elegance makes it the perfect match for thick-cut beef steak in a pepper sauce, coq au vin and beef bourguignon.
