Domaine Thomas Rouanet


Domaine Thomas Rouanet

Thomas Rouanet has worked with Yannick Pelletier, also a winemaker from the Languedoc-Roussillon region, since 2011 and it was in 2012 that he vinified his first own vintage. His 5-hectare vineyard -in the beautiful village of Creissan- is located in the southern part of the appellation zone. (St. Chinian). The terroir is a clay-limestone mix. Thomas’ vineyard is planted with Grenache noir, Carignan, Syrah, Alicante, Terret gris and white and soon Cinsault. The vines have been organically cultivated since the 1990’s and previously belonged to his winegrower grand-father. Thomas‘s lifestory has been largely influenced by his family history and his grandad’s passion for his job. 
"In the end, we create nothing; we're only continuing what has been given to us through different generations, following what has been taught to us." Thomas Rouanet
