Alain Carrère founded Domaine de Majas with his wife Agnès in 1992. Today, the estate represents 30 hectares, all in the commune of Caudiès-de-Fenouillèdes. The terroir consists of schist, volcanic stone, and mountainous limestone. After tasting the wines, Tom Lubbe (Domaine Matassa) told Alain he would start helping them rebuild the estate from the ground up. The two agreed on a partnership, and with Tom's guidance, they immediately started converting all 30 hectares to organic viticulture, as well as eliminating all commercial yeasts, additives and excessive sulfur in the cellar. Tom also showed Alain the importance of highlighting different terroirs, a lesson that has produced great results. The wines being produced today are fresh, elegant and fun to drink.
The L’Amourouse rosé is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot & Syrah. The red fruit really pops, and there is a herby note of garrigue lingering at the edges.
