Presentation

Domaine de la Brillane pays great attention to soil conservation, expression of terroir and purity of flavours. In Aix-en-Provence, near the hamlet of Couteron, Emmanuel and Corinne Gensollen enthusiastically share the dream that they have given form to. 

Extra

At the end of each year, Domaine de la Brillane organizes a Christmas market that brings together the region’s best food artisans. This convivial moment is the perfect occasion to taste the domain’s vintages and prepare year-end holidays with exceptional food.

Original and unusual

Until the 90s, the name of the hamlet was written with h (Coutheron). It seems that the consonant has disappeared when the services of the city of Aix-en-Provence - that is administratively attached to the village - changed road signs. We thus find that the spelling of the name was that of the Provencal family who owned land in the town.
