Domaine du Poujol, Big Dreams of One Talented Winemaker

It was a big dream to work outdoors in the vineyards which brought Belgian, Eddy Hartung, to the famous wine region of Languedoc. Nowadays, Eddy and Laurent who both are the owners of the winery have been making wine near Montpellier since 2016. Domaine du Poujol covers 67 hectares, of which they use 10 hectares for wine production. They plan to plant another 10 hectares in the next five years. The land of Domaine du Poujol is mostly limestone. The south-facing slopes get plenty of sun, while the breeze from the Cevennes Mountains cool the region down creating perfect harmony in the ripening grapes. Domaine du Poujol’s vineyards posses a high concentration of magnesium which is one of the main reasons for “fresh”, mineral flavors of their wines.

Grape Varieties at Domaine du Poujol

Domaine du Poujol produces wines in the Languedoc appellation as well as Vin de Pays de l’Hérault wines. Some wines bear the label Grés de Montpellier, a fairly new designation dating from 2002 for vineyards in the Hérault Valley. For white wines, they grow Roussanne, Vermentino, and Carignan Blanc. The red varieties are Mourvèdre, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Carignan Noir, Grenache Noir, and Cinsault.

The Winery that Preserves a Rare Grape

The family uses biodynamic and organic methods of viticulture, which places a special emphasis on the lunar calendar. All aspects of the harvest at Domaine du Poujol are done by had. They cultivate a unique grape variety and create a 100% Carignan Blanc wine, notable for being aged in acacia barrels for 8 months. At Domaine du Poujol, they are particularly keen to save this disappearing variety. As well as whites and reds, they make a rosé blended from Cinsault, Carignan, Grenache, and Mourvedre.
