Domaine Gourt de Mautens Description

Gourt de Mautens takes its name from the local dialect. Gourt is “a place where the water flows,” and Mautens is the word for a “storm or bad weather.” Together it is the place where the water flows when it storms. This unique part of the landscape ensures that even in the driest of years, the vines on the property have plenty of moisture in the clay subsoils deep underground. The topsoil is chalky and rocky clays and marls. Poor in nutrients, these soils result in meager yields averaging 10-15 hl/ha.  Favoring an integrated approach to cultivation and one that honors the traditions of his ancestors, Jérôme’s vineyards are surrounded by olive and fruit trees. Most of his vines are head-pruned and are between 30 and 100 years old.
