DOMAIN Mount of Mary
Welcome to Domaine de Mont de MarieAfter studying business and working for an IT group, Thierry Forestier left it all behind and created his estate in 2004 in Souvignargues in the Gard.
But his surname already hinted that this big guy was going to get closer to nature.
In spite of a difficult start, starting from nothing and with only 5 Ha of vines, Thierry has managed to bounce back and today he has 12 ha in biodynamic of course. As the son of farmers, the land, nature and the vine have always attracted him to make natural wine was an obvious choice even if he prefers to call it "living wine".
His plots benefit from a rich biodiversity with varied sunshine and micro-climates, the maturities are therefore different and favour particular expressions, which he tries to transmit in his wines.
They are authentic, fresh, juicy and deep, wines that you want to drink and drink again in moderation, I can imagine.
