Xavier Braujou came from a family of winemakers, but initially he chose to be a lumberjack. He was OK with that, enjoying his direct involvement with nature as he worked in the forest. It was only in 1998, after working in Daumas Gassac and in Alsace, that he turned his attention to his first love, wine. He started to buy vineyards in St-Jean-De-Fos. Not long afterwards, he gave woodcutting the chop and moved exclusively into winemaking.
In the years that followed, Braujou has perfected fresh, velvety wines, using organic and biodynamic principles. His background in the forests has given him a deep understanding of nature, and he knows everything about each of his terroirs—the climate, the soils, the vines. Only local, naturally occurring yeasts are used for fermentation, with no fining and only a very limited amount of sulphur.
The blending of the same grape varieties from different terroirs is Braujou’s speciality, and for this reason his mono-varietal wines do not meet the conditions of the local AOC, meaning they are labelled vin-du-pays.
