Vignobles Jeanjean
Mas de Lunès

THE MAS DE LUNES, WHERE IT ALL CAME ABOUT

The sea rounded its pebbles here 35 million years ago. Today it has been set aside to 1000 hectares of unspoiled Mediterranean scrubland on the Moure hillside and one of the most outstanding jewels of the Vignobles Jeanjean, the Mas de Lunès. In this exceptional ecosystem off the beaten track, you want for nothing: beehives, olive grows, game, vines… A place where Philippe and Frédéric Jeanjean bring the Lunès wines to life, as did their parents.                                                                                  There’s not a single trace of chemical weedkillers whatsoever. To carry on the commitment towards respecting the environment, the vineyard has been officially certified AB since 2013.

 

GRES DE MONTPELLIER: CLASSY WINES

The Mas de Lunès vineyard spreads out across gently rolling rocky hillsides parallel to the coast. It’s marked by a sea influence since the Mediterranean is visible from the high ground here. Sheltered from drying northerly winds and swept by moist sea breezes, the grapes at Mas de Lunès retain fresh juice and aromas throughout the ripening process, despite the intense Languedoc sunshine.

Brigitte Jeanjean

This rather unique site, coupled with red clay soils and very chalky pebbles, gives Lunès’ wines a well-balanced intensity and minty characters among others.
