Alain and Agnès: it sounds like a chic home furnishing company for the Bobos (the bohemian bourgeoisie) of the 11th arrondissement. But no: we refer here to the impossibly thoughtful Carrère couple, who founded Domaine de Majas in 1992. They now have a wild, sprawling, and gorgeous estate right where France turns into the Pyrenees and Spain. Schist, volcanic stone and mountainous limestone make these wines quite unlike other Southern Frenchies. Add organic farming (they're partners with famed biodynamic producer Tom Lubbe of Matassa) and this blend of Macabeu, Rolle, and Carignane Blanc turns quite special indeed: lively, structured and serious, with notes of peach, a floral kick, and a long mineral finish.
