The history of Domaine de Brescou dates back to the 14th century. At the time, the Crozals family was seigneurs d’Alignan. Documents prove that the family cultivated wine here since the midst of the 18th century. Hundred years later, Domaine de Brescou was the leading suppliers of communion wine in France. Domaine de Brescou has always maintained a respect for traditional methods, together with an open mind for new and improved production ideas.
The Domaine de Brescou spreads its 50 hectares on the gentle slopes of the Languedoc hills, approximately 25 kilometres from the Mediterranean and between Montpellier and Beziers. Here, a privileged soil, blessed by a favourable climate produces excellent red, white and rosé wines.
Thanks to careful treatment and trimming of the wine, an average yield of 36 hectolitres per hectare can be maintained. It goes without saying that all steps in the wine making are coherent with existing EU-regulations and with respect for the environment. We apply the working method lutte raisonnée e.g. avoiding non organic fertilizers and penetrating pesticides. Aging in oak barrels is applied depending on the requirements for the final product. Our quality ambitions have resulted in numerous diplomas and medals over the years.
