Tasting Notes

The nose is very appealing with aromas of butter and toasted almonds. This is a wine with great balance - there is an underlying acidity that ensures longevity and elegance whilst the intense, opulent flavours fill the mouth without being clumsy or heavy. They style is restrained and almost Burgundian despite the abundance of ripe southern fruit.

In the vineyard

Sourced from Pyrenean foothills of the Pays Cathare that surrounds the towns of Carcassonne and Limoux, the beautiful rugged environment with its argilo-calcaire sub strata is home to the AOP Languedoc and Limoux, but the vineyards do not stop with the AOP geographical limits and it is from these outskirts that we have sourced some exceptionally interesting wines. One of the great advantages of the region is that fact that it benefits from enviable geographic and climatic conditions allying the warm Mediterranean sunshine which is tempered by the altitude and the cooler nights so characteristic of the foothills of the Pyrenees. These are ideal conditions allowing for the longer, slower ripening of the grapes, thereby providing a superb base for the elaboration of wines that offer intensity, complexity and finesse. The traditional ‘noble’ grape varieties of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir have a natural affinity here in the Haute Vallée de l’Aude, as does the less widespread Malbec (originally known in France as Cot).

In the winery

Made from mostly hand-picked grapes, this wine has been vinified in large, old oak barrels which impart texture and intensity.

Food Recommendations

Baked chicken with a creamy sauce, wild mushroom risotto or pasta with clams in white wine.
