The domain was establised late in 2013, when Jean-Frédéric
Bistagne bought a cellar and some land belonging to Bernard
Dusiegneur, who has removed his activities to Chateauneuf du Pape.
Bistagne has en education from INSEAD from Institut national
and has since 1990 been CEO in some electronic firms in France
He has chosen to change to be a full time winegrower. The area
of vineyards bought from Dusiegneur are 8 ha of Lirac and 8 ha.
In 2015 Mr.
Bistagne has bought a parcel at lieu-dit Fargueirol in Chateauneuf du Pape of
0,5 ha planted with Syrah. He will probably look for a parcel
with Grenache to make a more traditional Chateauneuf du Pape.
It has been important for Jean-Frédéric
Bistagne to continue the traditions from the former
owner's biological and biodynamical methods in the vineyards and
in the cellar. Therefore he has a near cooperation with Frédéric
Duseigneur, who after his seperation from the brother Bernard
Duseigneur has established himself as an advisor of biodynamical
viticulture and vinification
Domaine des Maravilhas endeavors to keep a high portion of the
land uncultivated (>20%) so as to maintain a natural habitat
for the vine insect-pests.... After
years of practice and observation Frédéric Duseigneur knows
that to produce grapes of superior quality the vines need more
than just nutrients. The vines requires a more refined, and more
spiritual nourishment brought by a flora and a fauna that are
kept as rich and diversified as possible –as well as strong
relationship with the winemaker.
is the approach and the experience that he is passing on to us
and such is the legacy we intend to perpetuate at the Domaine
