With its 246,000 hectares of vineyards, Languedoc-Roussillon is the largest wine-growing region in the world. It harbours no less than 19 different appellations including the famous Fitou, Minervois, Corbières, and Côtes-du-Roussillon Villages, not forgetting the Languedoc appellation.
This beautiful region is a true mosaic of terroirs, offering pleasant, intense and fruity wines.
Les Grands Chais de France have been present in Languedoc-Roussillon for nearly 30 years. Our J.P. Chenet brand, among others, stems from this region. This is the bestselling brand of French wine in the world - a global success story which reflects the quality of our know-how.
The Group today owns nearly 500 hectares of vineyards in the region. Our jewels in the crown, such as Domaine de la Baume and Mas Belles Eaux in Languedoc and Mas Seguala in Roussillon, underscore our presence in the region and offer our customers an even broader palette of wine with gourmet flavours.
Gently rocked by the Tramontane and Marin winds, the vineyards benefit from an ideal Mediterranean climate and a kaleidoscope of soils of different hues.
Near Carcassonne, Domaine La Rèze and Domaine Tholomiès grow wine organically. This approach implies strict, precise specifications, enhancing the terroir’s signature.
Château Seguala, with a surface area of 60 hectares, lies a little further south, a few kilometres from Perpignan. It reflects the taste for tradition through three exceptional award-winning appellations: Côtes du Roussillon Villages, Tautavel and Maury Sec.
Our goal: to produce exceptional wines and meet consumer expectations and requirements.
Our teams have been present in Languedoc-Roussillon for many a year and have extensive knowledge of the region. By maintaining unalloyed partnerships with cooperative cellars and domains and contributing to a number of excellent acquisitions, they have helped the GCF Group adapt to the changes and developments that have occurred in the region over the years, such as vineyard restructuring and the creation of new appellations.
