Villemajou takes its name from “Villa Major”: the Roman villa which owes its reputation to the Latin poet Apollinaire. Acquired by Georges Bertrand in 1973, it is the family cradle, where Gérard learned the profession of winegrower with his father. The Boutenac cru is characterized by a hilly landscape and deep soils of rolling pebbles allowing the old vines of Carignan to resist the arid and windy climate of this terroir.

Custody and Service Tips
White: To be enjoyed with pan-fried scallops, fish in sauce or as an aperitif
Red: To be decanted and served at 16°C with a rack of lamb, game or aged cheeses
White: The grapes, harvested by hand, are pneumatically pressed with separation of the presses as soon as they arrive at the cellar. All of the juice undergoes alcoholic fermentation in new French oak barrels (temperature control helps preserve the freshness and integrity of the aromas). Aging in barrels lasts between 7 and 8 months until the spring equinox with regular stirring.
Red: The remarkable quality of this cuvée lies in the exceptional quality of the old vines of Carignan and Shiraz. The harvest is manual and begins when the maturity of the berries is reached. Some of the Syrah and Carignan are vinified by maceration in whole bunches. Traditional maceration is carried out on the other grape varieties. The wines are blended after malolactic fermentation and then put into 225-litre Bordeaux barrels in our cellar for aging for 12 months. The wine is then kept for 12 months before being marketed.
