Judging from this latest investment, organic and the Terrasses du Larzac appellation have confirmed their status as rising stars in the South of France. Based in Montpeyroux, in the Terrasses du Larzac appellation, Domaine du Joncas has just been bought by Grands Chais de France (GCF) as reported by V&S News and Lettre M. “The acquisition of Domaine du Joncas comes after Domaine du Plan de l'Homme”, Anne-Laure Rayne Helfrich, GCF marketing assistant, told Vitisphere. The Alsace firm bought the estate located 6 kilometres South-West of Domaine du Joncas in Terrasses du Larzac at the end of 2017.

The two properties are not only close in geographical terms, they also have similar profiles: both are certified organic and small, respectively 11 hectares for Plan de l'Homme and 12 hectares for Domaine du Joncas, whose size “has been voluntarily restricted so that one person can run it”, explains Pascal Dalier on his website (contacted by Vitisphere, he was not available for comment on the sale).

A 5-year appellation history

Recognised by decree in 2014, the Terrasses du Larzac appellation covers 568 hectares of vines, and is home to 87 independent and 5 co-operative wineries according to statistics from the Languedoc wine marketing board (CIVL).
