Oceanic Terroir: ELEGANCE
Heavily subjected to westerly winds, this terroir is characterized by alternating wet and dry periods that result in highly distinctive organoleptic variations. Pronounced notes of citrus fruit.
Vivacity and salinity
Upper Valley Terroir: SUBTILITY
The hills in the southern part of Limoux have an average altitude of 380 m. This, along with precipitation arriving from the west, makes it the coolest and therefore the latest-ripening terroir with low yields. This area produces fresh, mineral wines that are ideal for cellaring.
Harmony, concentration, roundness and acidity
Mediterranean terroir: POWER
Facing the Mediterranean.
Protected from westerly winds yet subjected to precipitation coming from the Mediterranean Sea, this terroir is characterized by a hot climate. The often high levels of ambient humidity encourage rapid development of sugars during the ripening phase of the grapes.
This terroir produces fleshy wines.
Richness and intensity
Autan terroir: GENEROSITY
Surrounding Limoux, this terroir is more continental, protected from westerly winds and partially from easterly winds by the Malepère mountains. It is characterized by a hot climate that promotes early ripening of the grapes. The soil yields wines that are rich and unctuous, with subtle notes of butter for the Chardonnays.
Fullness and opulence on the palate
Seeking out wines with dense fruitiness as well as structure to allow for longer ageing periods led us to the Upper Valley terroirs for the finesse and freshness of their grapes, which are complemented by grapes from the Mediterranean and Autan terroirs for added intensity and body.
Deep cherry red
Black fruit (blackberry, blackcurrant) combined with sour cherry and raspberry
Cherry flavours evolve toward peppery, mentholated notes. A hint of cedar rounds out the fruitiness. Silky texture with impressive length. Complex and fresh.
The Chardonnay grapes thrive in these four different climates; it all depends on the subtlety and balance of the grapes we select within each terroir to craft wines that are complex, mineral and rich.
Starts off with notes of white flowers and citrus zest that awaken the senses that are further enhanced by hints of vineyard peach and hazelnut.
Flavours of fresh almonds and grapefruit are complemented by nuances of lily and vanilla on the finish. Energy and vivacity balance this rich wine that is reminiscent of the sea.
