Domaine Royal de Jarras

Neighbouring its capital Aigues-Mortes, Domaine Royal de Jarras offers a wealth of discovery. The “Vignoble des Sables” is planted on an island, which was long ago given the name of Isle de Stel. The place is loaded with history and tales of the knights who accompanied Saint Louis, King of France on his Crusades to the Holy Land. At the end of the 11th century, Europe's youth became enamoured with the idea of liberating Christ's tomb in Jerusalem and embarked on an unprecedented adventure led by Godfrey of Bouillon. Bertrand, son of Raymond of St Gilles, Count of Toulouse, joined the crusades and left for the Holy Land in 1109. Before embarking on the Crusades, Bertrand founded the Hospital that was to become the Grand Priory of St Gilles, the oldest European house of the Order of St John of Jerusalem. This priory was a hospice for pilgrims on their way to or returning from the Holy Land. As such, it enjoyed the generosity of the princes and lords who were supporters of the Crusades. Over time, this Templar commandry acquired many domains, including Daladel, Saint-Jean-de-la Pinède and, at the end of the 12th century, the island of Stèle, the northern part of which contained the maritime warehouses. In 1240, Louis IX, wanting a French port for transporting the troops, became interested in the strategic position of Aigues-Mortes, with its direct access to the Mediterranean Sea. The monks of Psalmody Abbey, who owned the town, agreed to cede it to him. Louis IX fortified the town and later enlarged the royal territory. It was during this period that Languedoc wines began to be exported. Traces of the past still exist today through the boundaries from 1656 and those marked out in 1764 by Louis Sequin, a land surveyor. The boundaries of Domaine Royal de Jarras are a testament to this history. The Camargue is well-known for its magnificent landscapes as well as its typical fauna and flora. One less well-known fact is that it is home to a remarkable vineyard that is completely unlike any other: the Vignoble des Sables. This perfect balance between an area dedicated to vines and unspoilt nature is the essential prerequisite for sustainable winemaking and biodiversity. Most of this vineyard is located around the “capital” of the Vin des Sables: Aigues-Mortes. Jarras is the bigger of the twelve domains that are impressive by their dimensions and their delightful landscapes. A unique property covering a contiguous area with some 429 hectares of vineyard, over 3 coastal strips, of which Auriane Eysseric, the cellar master, is responsible for the blending of the different cuvées. The vines of Domaine Royal de Jarras survived the phylloxera epidemic that originated in 1863.The soil is cultivated traditionally without using any herbicide. In order to avoid wind erosion, a rye cover protects the soil from October to May. More than 5,000 sheep pasture here throughout the winter. Fertilization is mainly organic. Sable de Camargue is a protected geographic indication and produces wines with extremely low acidity. The main vine stock at Domaine Royal de Jarras is Grenache gris. The juice obtained after pressing this grape varietal has a unique «pink grey» colour, which gives it its «gris de gris» name. Generation after generation, Domaine de Jarras’ mission has been to protect and enhance the area’s natural environment while also respecting it. All the right steps have been taken to ensure the vines that produce these exceptional wines grow in harmony with the natural landscape, protecting both the vineyard and its surrounding environment. Following the new techniques and developments of recent years, these vineyards adopted the precise viticulture methods that logically led to what we know as organic wine production. This is why all the products used are natural. The goal is to constantly watch over the well-being of the soil, plants, and animals, thereby promoting the health of the ecosystem. 800 hectares of our Camargue vineyards are classified organic under European regulation, allowing us to produce wines using this viticultural method.
