Domaine Jean Louis Denois

Domaine Jean Louis Denois

Jean Louis Denois is a passionate and innovative winemaker. After completing his studies in Beaune he worked in Australia, New Zealand, California and South Africa. He believes in environmentally friendly vineyard practices and also in minimising yields to maximise the quality of the grapes.

We usually describe Jean Louis as a perapatetic iconoclast, mainly because, as a native Champenois, he makes fantastic sparkling wine, in the Champagne style, but in the foothills of the Pyrenees. This description is no less apposite for his still wines, the best examples of which capture the essence of the grapes in question, and throw in for good measure a dose of winemaking genius and a generous pinch of Languedoc sunshine

The Domaine's wines make the most of the contrasting climates and terroirs available across the Languedoc region and are allowed to evolve naturally and gradually with as little interference as possible. Its vineyards are situated in the extreme Southwest of Languedoc, close to Ariège at the foot of the Pyrenees.

The Grande Cuvée is a blend of Roussanne and Chardonnay
