Print the sheet

Ownership & history:

Domaine Sergent belongs to the Dousseau family. For the last ten years, it has been run by sisters Brigitte and Corinne. In addition to making wine, they also produce a variety of local duck-based specialties: foie gras, magret etc.

Vineyard & location:

The estate is in the village of Maumusson in the South-West part of France facing the Pyrennées Mountains; where the sisters make wine under two appellations: Madiran for the reds, Pacherenc de Vic-Bilh for the whites (sweet and dry). The vines stretch across 19.5 ha of south-facing slopes and are on average 35 years old.

Harvest, vinification & ageing:

For their AOC Madiran, the Dousseau sisters do two bottlings - one without oak, and this one, which has been aged in oak for two years.
