LANGUEDOC
 

Languedoc spans the Mediterranean coastline from the French border with Spain to the region of Provence. is the single biggest wine-producing region in the world, being responsible for more than a third of France's total wine production.
 
The history of Languedoc wines can be traced to the first vineyards planted along the coast near Narbonne by the early Greeks in the fifth century BC. Along with parts of Provence, these are the oldest planted vineyards in France. Vineyards in the Languedoc are generally planted along the coastal plains of the Mediterranean while those in the Roussillon are to be found in the narrow valleys around the Pyrenees.

In the Languedoc, the plains area is the most arid and hottest region of France. The region's Mediterranean climate is very conducive to growing a large amount of a wide variety of grapes, with vintners in the area excelling in mass production.

About Domaine Magellan

THE STAR FROM PREMIUM BOURGOGNE

Mr. Bruno Lafon, a descendant of a  well-known Burgundy  winegrowing family. While Mr. Dominique Lafon is focused on the production of Comtes Lafon wines, the family's passion toward winemaking has led them to expand their wine business in another part of France. In 1999, the idea was to come to the Languedoc region because terroirs exist, and some pioneers showed the way. Then, Mr. Bruno Lafon settled in Southern France and acquired Domaine Magellan in Magalas in 1999.

Domaine Magellan is situated in a relatively cooler location in Southern France.  It has a real mediteranean climate. The vines are goblet trained and each vine grows 4 to 5 bunches. The average age of the vines is 30 years. The vines are grown naturally without chemical fertilizer or pesticide. The motto of the Domaine is grow grapes as naturally as possible.

 “During the first years at Magellan we were very much influenced by our burgundy roots, one terroir, one wine. This has evolved towards an authentic ‘southern’ style with Châteauneuf du Pape as our leading model. The complexity of southern style wines are a result of the alchemy of blending together different varieties, originating from different terroirs.”

Bruno Lafon, founder & winemaker
