DEVOIS DES AGNEAUX

THE DEVOIS OF LAMBS, REMAINS TEMPLIERS

On the heights of the plateau of Aumelas, it took several years of noble relentless effort to clear a few acres of scrubland and grow over time the vineyard of Devois des Agneaux. Next to the Mas de Lunès, the Templars settled there in the 12th century, cultivating vines and raising sheep. The term “Devois” also means in Occitan a grazing place whose use was regulated. The former medieval sheep barn, converted into a cellar by Brigitte and Elisabeth Jeanjean, offers today perfect conditions for barrel aging in harmonious wines.
Anxious to practice viticulture respectful of the environment, the entire vineyard is certified AB (organic farming) since 2013.

THE ROCAILLOUS BUTTON WITH LANGUEDOCIAN ACCENT

Away from civilization, the vineyard of Devois des Agneaux is established on beautiful hillsides of hard limestone. The vines grow literally in the rock, naturally limiting yields and offering intense, concentrated and spicy wines. With a vineyard located 200 meters above sea level and facing it, the estate enjoys cool nights. This contrast of temperature with the sometimes scorching days of the summer allows a harmonious maturation of the grapes.
