Languedoc company Vignobles Jeanjean, managed by Brigitte Jeanjean, has taken over Domaine des Rocs in Corconne in the Pic Saint Loup area of Southern France. The estate, which until now was owned by the Jean family, members of the La Gravette co-operative winery in Corconne, has 13 hectares of vines in AOC Pic Saint Loup and has been organic since 2009. “We are always on the look-out for some real gems to broaden our portfolio of organic wines in the finest Languedoc appellations. For several years now, I've wanted to have an estate in Pic St Loup. It is an appellation I find inspiring and more importantly, one that produces great wines. I am delighted that an opportunity arose to buy an estate in one of the coolest vineyard sites in the Pic St Loup”, said Brigitte Jeanjean.

Vignobles Jeanjean currently farms 213 ha of vines in Languedoc, spread across 9 estates and covering a major share of the Languedoc appellations. All of the vineyards are grown organically or are in the switch-over phase, and four of them are certified High Environmental Value (HVE).
