Wine in Cassis is really a very long story! Archaeological excavations have dated its presence since Roman times and the first texts mentioning vineyards date back to the Middle Ages. Originally, they grew at the Courton, that is to say at the foot of Cap Canaille and the Castle overlooking Cassis, near the beach of the Arena (text of March 16, 1199).
Domaine du Bagnol, which takes its name from the district where it is located, is one of the oldest in the country in Cassiden and one of the very first to have welcomed it. The communal archives of 1430 thus mention vineyards in the Bagnol district. And it was in 1867 that the first formal trace of the property of the Marquis de Fesques, called the Bagnol, appeared.
The modern history of the Estate began in 1997 when Jean-Louis Genovesi bought it. In 2003, Sebastian his son, after specialized studies, came to take over. Gradually, he infuses his determination to preserve the authentic character of the Bagnol, both in terms of the terroir and the winemaking of wines, especially whites. Today, his Marquis de Fesques cuvée is spearheading it.
The Domaine's motto is to work in the most natural way possible. While the first vintage labeled organic farming was born in 2014, conversion began three years earlier.
It is out of conviction and not obligation that biodynamics has been part of the principles of producing a wine of rare elegance and loaded with know-how.
Tasting Notes: Light in color, yet full in flavor. There are red fruit notes cloaked in great salinity. Fun and bright with racy acidity.
