The 2008 En Sol Majeur wine from the Domaine du Grand Arc shows a taut, vigorous texture on the palate. It is certainly the estate's most powerful wine, with nice balance and freshness on the palate. A true, sincere, unique expression of the Grenache, attracting and flickering with a thousand lights.


Hand harvested, traditional vinification, de-stalked, cold stabulation, 30 to 35 days maceration. 12 months aging in oak cask of 3 to 400 litres of which 50% are new. Yield: 35 hl/ha.


Lovely garnet colour.


Honest and generous on the nose, aromas of red berries, smoky and spicy.


Powerful and smooth on the palate, the wine is remarkable in its balance and freshness.


Serve between 16 and 18°C. Decant 1 hour before drinking.

Food and wine pairing:

Provençal stew, filet of beef with morel mushrooms.

Cellar aging:

Enjoy up to and including 2014

The beauty and wild nature of the Hautes-Corbières landscapes attracted Bruno and Fabienne to this region in 1990. They took over an existing wine growing business and started to produce quality wines with a passion. Since then they have built up a 50 hectares estate of garrigue scrubland and vines, restoring buildings in which they installed their winery.
