Domain: Vignobles Mayard Vignobles Mayard has Gratien Mayard to thank for its existence today. At the end of the 19th century, Gratien resisted the temptation to leave for the United States after the phylloxera crisis. His love for his native land proved too overpowering so he replanted his vineyard vine by vine. His successors now run a domain covering 43 hectares and planted on excellent lieux-dits in the Châteauneuf du Pape appellation. They practice sustainable viticulture and control yields carefully to allow the terroir to express itself.
