The Pive Domain The wines of the estate are like the soils that have nourished the vine: delicate, light, almost airy ... while exhaling intense and complex aromas, results of the assembly of different grape varieties. Signature de Brigitte Jeanjean

THE PIVE DOMAIN

DOMAINE LE PIVE, WORK OF NATURE AND MAN

A stone’s throw from the old town of Aigues Mortes, the vineyards of Domaine Le Pive anchor their roots in the fine sands of the Camargue coast. They encircle the Pive Chapel, a neo-Romanesque treasure of nineteenth-century architecture, which still radiates the serenity of a place where time seems to stop.
If the wild nature of Camargue reigns supreme, here more than elsewhere the role of man is decisive. In order to avoid rising salt water, which would be fatal for the vines, the freshwater table must be maintained in hydrostatic equilibrium with the sea and the lagoons. It is thanks to the management of the roubines, small canals bordering the plots, that the vines can flourish and offer us the emblematic wine of the Camargue sands: the gray wine.
In order to protect the Camargue ecosystem and its incomparable biodiversity (flamingos and other waders, turtles, beavers, samphire and other halophilic plants …), Domaine Le Pive has been certified Organic Agriculture since 2011.

THE DELICACY OF THE SANDS OF CAMARGUE

Domaine Le Pive is located on the dune sands of the coastline, formed by the meeting of the waters of the Rhone and the Mediterranean. The vines benefit from a remarkable local climate: Mediterranean above all, it gives beautiful sunny days favorable to a good ripening of the grapes. Moderated by the spray, it also preserves the aromatic freshness of the grapes.
