Producer Profile Domaine de Magalanne
The property has belonged to the Betton family for more than 10 generations and initially a variety of crops were grown – vines of course, but also vegetables, fruits and even the madder plant which was notably used to dye the trousers of our soldiers in 1914. When Gilbert Betton retired in 1988, his son-in-law André Crouzet took over the estate. André Crouzet ran the estate alone until 2004 when Jean-Baptiste André retired in 2006, Jean-Baptiste took over the reins of the domaine until his brother Julien came into partnership with him in 2010, bringing with him his professional experience as a wine merchant in one of the department’s wine-growers’ cooperatives. They have been presiding over the destiny of the estate ever since!
