Jean-Noël Bousquet bought his first hectare of vines at 17 years old. Five years later in 1978 he establishe himself as a young farmer with 8 hectares. At this time he was selling his grapes to the cooperative.

A breathtaking visual impression! In the heart of Lézignan-Corbières discover a grand chai, born from the marriage of wood, stone and stainless steel. The winemaking workshop is equipped with innovative and functional installations: automated sorting table, stainless steel conical tanks etc. Adjoining the winery there are the barrel room and the bottling line.

For Bousquet father & son, the sure value is the land. Together, they work to identify the best wine terroirs, at home in Lezignanais. For 40 years, they have selected and established more than 250 plots on Lézignan-Corbières, Conilhac-Corbières, Boutenac, and Luc-sur-Orbieu. This mosaic of wine terroirs is a real concentrate of the diversity of the Corbières, and constitutes all the wealth of the Château Grand Moulin.

The Château Grand Moulin is a fabulous playground for the winemaker who seeks to reveal the uniqueness of the Corbières terroirs. The result is a wide range of rich red, white and rosé wines.

The terroirs of the Château Grand Moulin have been recognized for their high quality potential and they are classified as AOP Protected Designation of Origin Corbières and Cru Boutenac. Jean-Noël & Frédéric Bousquet proudly cultivate and represent this origin and quality of the Corbières region.

  The Massif des Corbières is a buttress of the Pyrenees, located between Carcassonne and the Mediterranean. The eponymous AOP Appellation d’Origine Protégée covers some sixty square kilometers and is based on a geological puzzle shaped by the Pyrenean erosion. No other appellation in France contains such a great variety of soils; associated with the various climatic nuances this leads to an extraordinary palette of white, red and rosé wines.

The vineyard of Château Grand Moulin evolves under a warm and dry Mediterranean climate. The distance to the sea causes a less pronounced summer drought and limits the disturbance and stress that a lack of water can cause to acheive good maturity of the grapes. The vineyard is located in the Lézignanais area – an extremely windy corridor between the Montagne Noire to the north and the Corbières peaks to the south. Here the wind blows more than 300 days a year. The dominant west wind (locally called Cers) dries the morning dew and promotes a healthy microclimate in the grapes. It thus makes it possible to greatly limit phytosanitary treatments ; reasoned conduct takes on its full meaning here.

There is a hilly pattern northwards at Conilhac and Lézignan ; and also to the south on the border of Luc and Boutenac. In the center is a pattern very specific to the Lézignanais : the flat and gravelly terraces of the Orbieu. We are in the Mediterranean region of the vine; the green oak, the pine tree and the olive tree. In the hottest situations (southern or southeast exposure and thin soils), one finds Kermès oak, pistachio, thyme, rosemary, lavender, scorpion broom and so on. In less warm situations (north or northwest exposure and with deeper soils) we find the pubescent oak, the common juniper, the broom of Spain, the coronille etc...

Corbières

A.O.C. Corbières

The Corbières is one of the wildest areas of France with one of the lowest population densities. It is picturesque with wine growing areas alternating with garigue and mountainous countryside. It is located mainly in the Aude département and partly in the Pyrénées-Orientales département. The River Aude borders the Corbières to the west and north. To the south is the River Agly and to the east the the Mediterranean Sea. The name Corbières comes from "cor" a pre-Celtic word meaning "rock" and "berre" from the River Berre which runs through Durban. The eastern part of the Corbières with its Etangs, borders the the Mediterranean Sea and is called the Corbières maritimes. It has its own distinctive climate and characteristic vegetation known as thermomediterranean vegetation...

La Pinède de Lézignan - Lézignan-Corbières
 
 
50,000 trees were planted in the pine forest and City with the help of the National Forestry Office, the Rescue Centre and the participation of the people and children in an awareness and education approach to preservation the quality of our environment. Lézignan-Corbières is a very active town, located along the main road between Narbonne and Carcassonne. The town has plenty of shops and cafés and so makes a good place to stop for a lunchtime visit. The main attraction, though, is the Wednesday market which is very large and packs the town with market stalls, people, odors (of the good sort) and activity. The main church of Lézignan-Corbières, Eglise Saint-Félix, is an imposing structure. Declared an historical monument, it's located in the center of town and has a small park just beside. The Wednesday market is a really big affair in Lézignan-Corbières. The market stretches around the south side of the old town, packing the main Cours de la République and most of the adjacent side-streets. There are very many clothes and food stalls, and all are popular. It was fun to observe which vendors had the best reputation by the bigger crowds packed around the more popular vegetable and food stands...
