The friendship between Matthieu Rollin and Nicolas Seffusatti was born in the back row of an economy class in Montpellier. They spent more time with their heads in the clouds rather than in notebooks, and more time daydreaming than listening to teachers, and in the end, their entrepreneurship and their will to reach for their dreams brought them together. “Right from the start, we knew what were our goals.” All they missed was a direction…. And the first direction has been China and the import of french wines. ‘We came in through the back door and we fought to make ourselves a place. It has been a rewarding experience, a very strong and personal achievement, but we still missed something… After 10 years spent relentlessly running after objectives we realized that time was flying by, that our children were growing and that we were slowly drifting away from our child dream : to create great wines in Languedoc. Our homeland. It was time to go back home! We founded Domaine Cassagne et Vitailles in 2015 with one ambition, to create true wines, uncompromising wines which would reflect all the richness and the diversity of Languedoc terroirs. Guided by nature, we passionately listen, observe and analyze like hard-working children living a waking dream.’



Notes and Reviews

Château Tasting


James Suckling 93: This wine presents a deep garnet colour with intense shades of red. The nose is complexe and intense. Red fruits aromas blend with sweet spices and white pepper. The palate is opulent and rich with silky tannins. A wonderful balance with a long-lasting mouth.
