Forteresse de Salses - Salses-le-Château
The fortress occupies a strategic site on the main road linking France and Spain over a narrow strip of land between the Corbières heights and Leucate lake. Constructed in a very short time between 1497 and 1504, its architecture has great majesty. The fortress of Salses is a good example of the transition between mediaeval castle - whose keep and towers at each corner of the long curtain walls it retains - and the modern geometric fortress sunk into the ground...
  Specialties

It owes its main innovative features to the necessity of adapting to the development of artillery that used metal cannonballs. The outer walls are 6 to 10 metres thick and are buried to half their height in a huge moat that could be flooded. Above the ground, the building rises to between three and seven floors served by a maze of internal passages.

Preceded by forward defence posts in the form of three cylindrical flanking towers with a pointed bastion linked to the central building by caponnières*, the site is a huge rectangle which looks as if it consists of a single particularly sturdy block.

The defensive system, in reality considerably more complex than it seems, is split into three independent sections running from east to west: the offices and service rooms arranged around a paved courtyard, the inner keep containing all the vital components of the fortress, with the keep dominating the whole and housing the governor’s lodging...

Muscats du Languedoc

A.O.C. Muscats du Languedoc

Muscat de Rivesaltes is an appellation for the historic vins doux naturels from a relatively large area of Roussillon, in southern France, covering a total of 99 communes, and the majority of the Pyrenees-Orientales administrative departement. It is the largest single sweet wine appellation in France. Muscat de Rivesaltes wines are made predominantly from Muscat Blanc a Petit Grains and Muscat d'Alexandrie in varying ratios, according to the style desired by the individual producer. Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains is used to bring aromas of exotic and citrus fruits while Muscat d'Alexandrie brings a deeper bouquet of white flowers and ripe stone fruit. Collectively the wines show aromas of peach, lemon, mango and occasionally fresher, herbaceous notes like mint. These aromas all change with ageing, (which take place mostly in the bottle to preserve the fresher aromas) and the wines take on aromas of honey and baked stone fruits...


Fitou

Fitou A.O.C.

The first "Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée" wine of Languedoc-Roussillon, is only produced in nine small communal areas: FITOU, Caves, Treilles, Leucate and La Palme, which are all beside the sea, between Narbonne and Perpignan, and Cascastel, Paziols, Tuchan, and Villeneuve in the Corbières-Massif. Documents going back as far as Philip Augustus, Louis XIII and Louis XIV bear witness to the long-standing reputation of Fitou wines.Rabelais particularly appreciated "vin de Palme" which now has the "Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée Fitou" label. he vineyards in Fitou are set out on shaly and argilocalcareous soils with exceptional exposure to the sun. The countryside, whose relief consists in parts of hills and slopes and in others of plateaux, has the advantage of a particularly dry climate and is often swept by a high wind, the "Cers"...

Muscat
de Rivesaltes

Muscat de Rivesaltes

Rivesaltes is the birthplace of the vin doux naturel, a creation of Arnaud de Villeneuve, the eminent 13th Century physician. It was he who discovered the process of halting the alcoholic fermentation by the addition of spirit to the must, thus giving rise to a new breed of wine. The technique has since been employed in the production of Rivesaltes, and over the ensuing centuries there have been numerous literary references to these fortified wines, which seem to have been highly regarded. Today there are 94 communes eligible to produce these wines, mostly in the Pyrénées-Orientales, although with nine situated in the Aude. The wines start off as principally red or white - although blending of red and white varieties, and subsequent barrel ageing, may influence the wine's true colour and eventual style significantly. Grenache Noir is the lead variety for the red wines, but this may be blended with a number of white varieties, including Grenache Blanc and Gris, Maccabeu and Tourbat...
