Thyme blossoms in Spring

The 5 hectares owned by Louis Biscan in 1900 became Domaine Pujol when he married his daughter to Edouard Pujol in the thirties. Since then three generations have worked on the Estate. Today the property is totally self sufficient, with its own bottling, a brand new cellar and aging facilities.

A major investment which currently shows some return, with a quality no one argues with and lots of projects ahead for further improvement.

Clay and gravels result from alluvium brought in the Tertiary. Vertical layers of sandstone and marl alternate, thus providing a very good drainage of the soil. Thyme blossoms here in Spring.

Domaine Pujol represents 50 hectares, 15 of which are Minervois AOC.
