Château Abbaye des Monges - Narbonne

The Chateau des Monges, snuggles against the western foothills of the Clape massif, near Narbonne, was built during the Gallo-Roman times.

In 1204 a female Cistercian order was created and the Monges Abbaye became one of the rare Cistercian Abbaye for women in Languedoc. Dating from 1204, the Abbaye Chapel from that era is still present.

In this region wines are created with intense aromas of black fruit and spice with nice matched scents of cassis, coffee, chopped truffle and oak.

Abbaye des Monges domain counts 30 acres of vineyard and 40 acres of garrigues. The soil is of limestome, sandy clay with pebbles. La Clape’s microclimate gives this land utmost hours of sunshine and, with the sea nearby, morning fogs enhance the ripening of the grapes.

Wine tasting is open from 9am to 7 pm. In summer, the wine tasting is open until 8pm. Getting there. Château Abbaye des Monges is a member of “Vins d’Abbaye” association and Terra Vitis association, which gathers wine-makers with the same belief of a sustainable wine-making.

  Specialties

The vineyards of the abbey of Monges are composed of old vines (over 50 years) Carignan, newer vineyards of noble varietals like Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache grape varieties ... and for white wines: Bourboulenc, Rolle, Viognier, Roussanne .

Tillage, the controlled and rational application of treatments now allow natural grass make the best expression of terroir in a respect for the environment. We harvest by hand all the grapes for red wines.

The grapes are vinified after being sorted, de-stemmed and crushed. The fermentation is done by indigenous yeasts. Fermentation lasts about two weeks, to obtain wines that are both fruity and structured. The majority of wine is aged in tank, while a selection is matured in oak barrels.

Rosé wines are vinified from red grapes bleeding selected after 6 to 10 hours of fermentation. For white wines, in order to harvest the grapes at the coolest temperature possible, the harvest is done by machine at dawn.

The harvest is sent directly into the presses by carpet to avoid crushing and oxidation. After pressing, the must is fermented racked temperature

La Clape

La Clape

The La Clape AOC is located where the Coteaux du Languedoc and Corbières appellations overlap and is well known for its vineyards that lie on a limestone outcropping that extends across the entire region. The region produces red, rose and white wines that are fully representative of the region and the reds show particularly well, often times considered a vin de garde. The majority of the wines of Gruissan are produced on the Clape. This little mountain, situated between Narbonne and Gruissan was an isle at the time of prehistoric man. The Clape, gets its name from the Occitan word « Clapas » meaning a pile of stones, and reaches a height of 214 m. The pine trees cover the slopes of the Clape. The garrigue covers the plateaux and the thyme, the rosemary and the lavender that invite you to promenade are what give the wines their character...


Organic Wine

Organic Wine

The cornerstone of organic farming is the soil. Maintaining a healthy, biologically active soil is the main objective for an organic farmer. In the vineyard it means cultivating the soil and planting cover crops, instead of applying herbicides. It means using natural fertilizers, such as composted animal manure, versus chemical fertilizers. Organic growers use no synthetic growth-regulators (such as Alar). As for not using pesticides, the organic alternative is to encourage natural predators of insect pests instead of using poisonous insecticides. Organic farmers promote "biodiversity" and allow plants other than vines to grow in and around the vineyard. Biodiversity helps regulate the vineyard soil by attracting beneficial insects, spiders and predatory mites, as well as provide shelter and food (pollen, nectar and other bugs), and replaces the need for chemical pesticides or insecticides. What cannot be fully controlled through biodiversity can still be managed organically, through the use of naturally occurring plant or mineral extracts, which leave no residues in the soil. In wet climates the main difficulty is raised by the use of copper sulfate against mildew, which leaves over time levels of copper in the soil that need to be monitored....
