Domaine Begude - Cepie

James and Catherine Kinglake fulfilled a lifetime’s dream and bought Domaine Begude in 2003. The award winning vineyard which has beautiful view over the Pyrenees and the Corbieres has been organically farmed for the last 30 years and wine has been produced on this historic estate since the 16th century. We are passionate about maintaining a healthy, living soil and a sustainable environment; to this end, we use organic manures to fertilise and we weed mechanically or by hand, rather than weed killing chemically. We also observe the lunar calendar in viticultural pratice at planting pruning & harvest time. In our modern winery we follow a strict minimum intervention philosophy.

We employ a driven perfectionnist, Laurent Girault, as our manager/winemaker, who has made wine all over France, as well as at Rippon Vineyard in Central Otago, New Zealand. Assisting Laurent in the vineyard are two other important members of this dynamic team, Vincent & Driss. Also on the payroll is Richard Osbourn, the renowned Australian winemaker originally from Adlaide and the Barossa Valley, who has been based in the South of France for the last 20 years. Overall we comprise a young and delicated team, who are passionately commited to the pursuit of excellence in wine-making.

James and Catherine Kinglake moved to France from London and have not looked back since producing their first vintage in 2004. Having bought the biodynamically worked vines from Robert Eden they set about their aim which was to produce ecologically responsible and superb quality still, wines using the existing terroir and to add a modern twist to their white wines which could rival the best from around the world. The terroir is excellent, the cooler climate a gift and the wines are impeccable and affordable…despite the cost of the tons of organic sheep and cow manure they buy in to fertilise the vines! They want every bottle to arrive in tip top condition and to this end they close all their bottles with Stelvin screw caps.

Domaine Begude is a stunning spot outside the village of Sépie just north of Limoux. You travel hopefully along a winding road, which apparently forms the boundary between Malepère and Limoux. It is a windy spot, with undulating vineyards at about 300 metres altitude. James has planted some Viognier in the warmest plot at 260 metres, and he has also planted some Gewurztraminer, with a first vintage anticipated for this year. He finds that he is making less and less appellation wine. You get more sunshine here than in Limoux itself as it is in the warmer Mediterranean terroir of Limoux.

Limoux

A.O.C. Limoux

Limoux is best known for its sparkling wine, Blanquette de Limoux. This is reputed to be the oldest sparkling wine in France and dates back to 1531 when Benedictine monks from Saint Hilaire Abbey discovered that the wine they had laid down had fermented and formed bubbles. This was the beginning of Limoux’s bubbly - the Blanquette de Limoux which was the first AOC to be created in the Languedoc area. The process (the locals say) was stolen by Dom Perignon who went on to create ‘champagne‘. however the Limoux sparkling wine is a very high quality champagne substitute and Crémant, which was developed in 1990, has a top class reputation. Now a prestigious event attracting buyers from all over the world, “Toques & Clochers” puts up for auction the most promising barrels of AOC Limoux. A share of the proceeds are then used to finance the renovation of bell towers in surrounding villages. Every year the auction is hosted by one of France’s great chefs popularly referred to as a “Toques”, the traditional white chef’s hat....


Blanquette de Limoux

Blanquette de Limoux,  Crémant de Limoux, Blanquette Méthode Ancestrale

History tells us that Blanquette de Limoux, the world's first sparkling wine, dates as far back as 1531. At the time, the monks of the Benedictine abbey of Saint-Hilaire, near Limoux, were producing a somewhat unusual white wine in their cellars. Inside its glass flask, with a cork top - very rare for wines at this time - it acquired a natural sparkle. This was the forefather of the brut which is tasted today at the world's most prestigious tables. Since they first started cultivating vines, the growers of Limoux have aimed at maintaining the originality of the Blanquette de Limoux growth and developing its quality. The region's surrounding hills protect it from the extremes of the Mediterranean and Atlantic climates, with the area enjoying a microclimate particularly suitable for making quality white wine. The vines classified in the appellation are always planted at the top of southern-facing slopes, giving the best exposure. The soil here is shallow and sparse, full of chalk and stone....
