Le Petit Domaine de Gimios
Le Petit Domaine de Gimios is located in Saint-Jean-de-Minervois, in the Hérault department. Saint Jean de Minervois is famous for the production of sweet and dry white wines produced with the Muscat grape. The Domaine was founded by Anne-Marie Lavaysse in 1993 with the restoration of old abandoned vineyards. Today together with his son Pierre, he cultivates five hectares of vineyards, which are located at 320 m s.l.m, on calcareous soils rich in skeleton, surrounded by a thick Mediterranean scrub, which guarantees a richer, more complex and protected terroir. Anne-Marie Lavaysse cultivates moscato à petitgrain for white wines, while the two red wines are made from sixteen different native vines, among which dominates the carignan, the historic vine of the Languedoc. Its centenary vines are grown with biodynamic methods, and neither sulfur nor copper nor chemical fertilizers are used. To protect the vines, Anne-Marie uses herbal teas based on aromatic plants. The harvest is manual, and in the cellar the vinification takes place with indigenous yeasts in steel tanks.
