Mas de Janiny
It was at the end of the 1980s that Thierry decided to settle down and take over the family business, with the help of his father.
Very quickly Pascal, his brother, a teacher in a business school, decided to join them. Mas de Janiny was born from this union. The 260 acres estate was transitioned to organic farming immediately. Preserving the terroir, the environment and health were our concerns, they are still our concerns today.
The vines are located in the middle of the scrubland on a clayey-limestone soil. Cultivation and treatments are done naturally, without weed killers, synthetic products and chemical fertilizers.
The rooting of the vine is one of our objectives, in order to exploit the soil to the maximum: to achieve this, the way of driving, trellising, the contribution of natural compost, ploughing, any contribution to give the vine and the grape the qualities required to produce a great wine. With us, no concern for yield, the vine only produces what it can feed in a perfect balance in harmony with the nature around it.
The wines produced on the estate are characterised by a very strong personality, a deep and sustained color, a powerful and complex aromatic palete, as well as a very good length in the mouth.
