Gilles Gelin

    In 1976, my father, Gérard Gelin, son and grandson of winemaker, bought the "Clos des Nugues". From there comes the name of the Domaine.

    In 2000, i joined my parents to continue the development of the Estate.

    Then, in 2008,my father retired and my wife Magali, joined me at the Domaine.

    In 2010, i fully took over the family estate.

    Since 1976 and along the years, we have bought new vine plots close to the Estate.

    At the Domaine, grapes are harvested by hand in order to have the healthiest fruits as possible before starting the wine making process.

    Rosés and whites are made in direct pressing with a low temperatured vinification .

    For reds, skin macerations can last from 6 to 25 days depending on the desired wine.

    Temperatures and densities of our vats are followed daily with at least one daily tasting of each cuvée
