Domaine of the Bee | Languedoc Roussillon

Domaine of the Bee Vineyards, Maury, the Roussillon, France

Domaine of the Bee is the result of the personal passion of Master of Wine Justin Howard-Sneyd who, following a particularly inspiring visit to Roussillon in 2004, purchased four hectares of vines close to the village of Maury. The vineyards are planted predominantly with Grenache and Carignan and are split over three plots, with vines aged between fifty and one hundred years. The wines speak unashamedly of the hot, dry climate of the south, but with a freshness and vivacity that tempers the heft. Whilst they are named with tongue firmly in cheek, do not let that fool you – these delicious wines are serious examples of the combined potential of old vines and Roussillon’s rugged terroir.
