Terroir & vineyards
Grés de Montpellier is the leading appellation of the Mas de Lunès, the historical and emblematic estate of Vignobles Jeanjean. Here, the estate lies alone in the middle of a 1000-ha plateau made of garrigue (scrubland) and a few parcels of vines, where the sheep established a long time ago. Our estate is a heaven of biodiversity : vineyards, olive trees, truffle oak trees, bee hives, garrigue. It is organically certified.

Daily pumping over and two rack and returns for optimal extraction. Long maceration of the Syrah. Malolactic fermentation.
