Profile

Nestled in the tiny village of Lansac, Domaine du Possible is the brainchild of Loïc Roure. In 2003, Loïc scrapped his initial plan of opening a restaurant/winebar/retailer, deciding instead to start his own estate. Starting out with some vines in Latour de France, he soon expanded with land closer to Lansac. He also recently purchased four hectares in Caudiès-de-Fenouillèdes, a half an hour drive from the Agly Valley. The estate now consists of 10.5 hectares spread over many parcels and communes, all falling under the Côtes du Roussillon A.O.C.
