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. 


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.
