At the end of the 19th Century, Gratien Mayard was hesitating about leaving for the United States after the phylloxera crisis; but the love affair with his native land proved too overpowering. Replanting his vineyard vine by vine, he played his part in making his successors the proud owners of a leading domaine (estate). Today the Mayard family and its team take care of running and modernising the domaine.
The family-run estate is nestled in the heart of the prestigious village of Châteauneuf du Pape. It is currently managed by Françoise, Béatrice and Didier Mayard, the fifth generation of owners.
The estate spreads across 43 hectares, featuring a huge diversity of terroir and grape varieties. Determined to follow a policy of Agriculture Raisonnée, or sustainable farming that focuses on green issues, priority is given to expressing terroir by controlling yields.

"In this wine, fragrant anise and black pepper accent concentrated plum and preserved black-cherry flavors. A blend of Grenache (70%), Syrah (15%), Cinsault (10%) and Mourvèdre (5%), it's full bodied and viscous, with a long, penetrating finish. Delicious now it will gain savory complexities for decades to come."
