Domaine La Madura is broken up into a series of small plots, which is typical of the estates in the Languedoc hinterland, where the region’s best “terroirs” are to be found. It is currently made up of plots that belonged to the previous owner, who used the opportunities available to him to put together a patchwork of vineyards that reflected his views on wine-growing. They are fascinating for the great variety of “terroirs”, i.e. combinations of soil types, grape varieties and microclimates. The landscape, too, plays a crucial role. Altitude varies considerably from one plot to another (150 to 300 metres), which means that the harvest can be spread out; the grapes are picked at peak ripeness and in less of a hurry. This variety is one of the estate’s key assets, producing a wide range of wines whose complementary qualities are used to make some very interesting blends.
The vines are worked with a constant concern to care for and improve the environment by building in the various related parameters. This approach is “Haute Valeur Environnementale” certified (HVE = High Environmental Value).
