  Specialities

St Papoul - a 15 minute drive away: Set in the Lauragais, Saint-Papoul lies on the first foothills of the "Black Mountain", 7 km from Castelnaudary, 35 km from Carcassonne and 60 km from Toulouse. The access to the enclosed village went though gateways. The Eastern Gate, quadrangular with loop-holes was erected by Guillaume de Cardaillac, Saint-Papoul's third bishop. It was used as a tower for the guards as well as the bishopric's jail. On the inner side, in the semi-circular arch, one can admire a wooden virgin from the 14th century. The heart of the village displays narrow streets with half timbered, corbelling houses.

The abbey of St Papoul: Founded in the 8th century, and placed under the rule of Saint Benedict. Saint Papoul, a follower of Saint Saturnin, the first bishop of Toulouse (3rd century) was martyred and had the top of his skull severed off in a place called the Hermitage. According to the legend, he bent down and pick up the top of his skull. A spring gushed out in that place. Saint Berenger, a monk well-known for his asceticism lived there in the 11th century. Crowds came to the abbey to worship on his grave after miracles had taken place here. In 1317, Pope John XXII made the village into a See. Up to the Revolution Saint-Papoul had 34 bishops. In 1361 the cathedral was plundered by the "routiers" (companies of looters) and in 1595 by the protestants. Important restorations took place in the abbey and the bishop's palace was rebuilt in the 17th and the 18th centuries. The Revolution put an end to the bishopric and the cathedral was turned into a parish church...

Cabardès

A.O.C. Cabardès

The Cabardès region is situated to the west of Languedoc and to the south of the central massif, a geologist's dream, balanced between east and west, the sun and the coolness, the heathland and the mountain. It is here that the winds cross. They bring the intense mediterranean heat necessary for southern "cépages" (grape types) such as syrah and grenache, and the cool atlantic humidity for the ocean "cépages": merlot, cabernet-sauvignon, cabernet-franc, cot and fer-servadou, to prosper. The vineyards and wines of Cabardès have been recognized as AOC since february 1999. The quality of the grapes, the wine-making, the blending of the "cépages" and the keeping of the wines has allowed us to obtain the best balance between fruit and structure, fullness and complexity, intensity and elegance. Cabardès assembles 30 châteaux and domaines over 500 productive hectares spread amongst 18 villages. 20000 hectolitres are produced each year,of which 60% are exported....


Vin de Pays d’Oc,
Vin de Pays de l’Aude

Vin de Pays d’Oc, Vin de Pays de l’Aude

Vin de Pays means 'country wine' to the French, but to outsiders it can mean New World with a French accent. These are the wines which the French authorities unreservedly allow to be labelled with the grape variety from which they were made. It is difficult to over-estimate the importance of this large and growing category of wines for the future of the French wine trade. The French themselves may have tended to see any Vin de Pays as distinctly inferior to any appellation contrôlée wine, whereas many of their customers abroad see the better Vins de Pays as good-value, user-friendly, sometimes high-quality non-conformist emissaries from the world's most revered wine producer....
