THE ESTATE


A young wine estate on a humane scale

Mas Gabriel was created in 2006 when we settled in the beautiful area of Pézenas.

We started out with the purchase of 5,5 hectares and subsequently bought a further hectare in 2008. We have deliberately chosen to remain small as this size allows us to do most of the work ourselves, working hands-on in our vines and in the winery.

Our first harvest in 2006 was tiny; we produced only 4000 bottles! Today, in a good vintage, we produce around 18 000 bottles, however 2017 and 2018 were difficult because of extreme climatic conditions. When the entire vineyard is producing, the number of bottles per year will be around 24 000.

A sustainable vineyard

All our work has one aim: to produce excellent wines which reflect our unique terroir.

The vineyard has been organic since before our arrival. We look after the soil carefully in order to preserve its structure and vitality, and the flora and fauna within. We have spread tons and tons of composted cow manure, use organic fertilisers and plants infusions. We prune the vines back hard in order to control the yield, and de-bud in Spring in order to remove unwanted shoots.

Our grape harvest is 100% by hand, and we reject the unacceptable bunches as we pick. We bring back to the winery only the healthy, beautiful bunches. We use gentle wine-making methods; the fermentation tanks are filled by gravity for our red wines, for the white and rosé the whole bunches are pressed to extract the juice, and we intervene as little as possible during the fermentations.

We work with a consultant oenologue Sébastien Pardaillé, who is an associate of Jean Natoli.

Our range of wines

Our vines are mainly located in Caux area, on an island of 5 hectares, with a beautiful terroir of basalt screes.

We produce two red wines, a rosé, and (according to the vintage) two whites:

  • Clos des Lièvres - our star wine, mainly syrah, blended with some grenache, aged for 12 months in 500L barrels
  • Les Trois Terrasses - essentially carginan noir, from old vines, with a little grenache and a little syrah
  • Les Fleurs Sauvages - rosé from whole bunch pressed carignan noir (old vines) and grenache
  • Clos des Papillons - from the rare white carigan grape
  • Champ des Bleuets - Vermentino blended withe grenache gris

Vintage 2018, the adverse weather conditions ( heavy rain falls and exceptionally high humidity which caused mildew) meant that we were able to produce only one white wine : “le blanc 2018”.
It’s a blend of all of our white varieties made from the grapes which escaped the mildew.
We’ve produced just 1000 bottles, some of which are reserved for WineFunders.

Meet us at the Estate!

We will be delighted to welcome you at our winery to introduce you to our vineyard and our wines. We propose a number of activities such as guided tours of the vineyard and gourmet picnics. An exclusive discount will be offered to WineFunders for these events (please contact us for further details).
