Domaine Astruc - Malras

Aquired in 2002 by Jean-Claude Mas, the Château Teramas Astruc is situated at the foot of the Pyrenean Mountain range, between 200 and 300 metres above sea level in the Limoux region (120 km from the coast). According to the history books, the world’s first ever sparkling wines were made in Limoux, in 1544.

Domaine Astruc comprises 80 hectares in AOP Limoux (coastal zone) AOP Malepère and IGP Pays d’Oc, of which 25 hectares are certified organic and 55 are farmed sustainably (certified by Terra Vitis).
The Malras site is home to our main wine cellar and bottling chain, and is where the Teramas Astruc wines are made. It benefits from a significant amount of rain in winter as well as cold winds which extend the ripening season.

The harvest is carried out both by hand and by machine. The Guyot simple and Cordon de Royat pruning methods are employed. Chardonnay, Pinot noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon blanc, Chenin blanc, Mauzac, Grenache and Syrah aged around 20 years old thrive in the clay-limestone soils.

The planting density is 5400 vines per hectare and the yield is 45 hl/ha. Château Terramas Astruc produces 2 wines: an AOP Limoux white and red...

  Jean Astruc, coachman at Limoux, had a dream: his own wine estate. The dream became reality in 1862, with the acquisition of 12 hectares of vineyard in Malras. His son Jean Astruc has the same ideal and continues to acquire land despite the crisis and his departure to the battlefields of the First World War. In the fifties his son Pierre inherited the Domaine Astruc. It then includes more than 30 hectares of vineyard and the means to exploit it. In 1977, after completing his studies, the son of Pierre, Jacques Astruc, returned to Malras to continue building the Domaine Astruc together with his father.

The Domaine Astruc has been growing since that time and has been hardened into a modern winery, which presses the grapes of over 400 hectares of vineyard, harvested by about a hundred farmers. The annual production amounts to 21,000 hectoliters. In 2002 Jean-Claude Mas comes into the picture: owner and winemaker of Les Domaines Paul Mas, a successful and independent family business in Pezenas, also in the Languedoc. He had been working for a long time with Astruc - the main source of their Vin de Pays wines - and decided to buy the Domaine. The d'A series is the first fruit of this purchase...

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....
