Château Gléon Montanié - Durban-Corbières

The origins of the Domaine de Gléon estate can be traced back to ancient times. Evidence of this lies in the many Gallo-Roman and Visigoth remains (Gaufresenque pottery, pre-Romanesque chapel). For ten centuries the estate belonged to the Treille-Gléon-Durban-Narbonne family.

Château Gléon guarded access to the Hautes-Corbières. It was besieged by the Spanish in 1503. The last Marquis of Gléon sold the estate to the ancestors of the current owners in 1861.

Since then, the Château Gléon has been run by the Bonnes family, and latterly by the Montanié family, handed down from father to son.

There have thus been six generations safeguarding the prosperity and quality of the castle's lands. The first "bottling" dates back from the end of the 19th century.

The Estate lies at the gateway to the Hautes-Corbières, in the canton of Durban, attached to the village of Villesèque-des-Corbières, at the entrance to what is known as Paradise Valley. It covers 303 ha/750 acres, including 50 ha/150 acres of vineyards.

  Specialties

The vineyards are located in the Durban wine-growing region, renowned for its subtle, complex red wine, with its supple and extremely expressive tannins. Philippe Montanié is in charge of the wine-making operations, advised by an oenologist, Robert Déjean.

The dates when the different plots are harvested are worked out after maturity inspections; all the grapes are picked by hand. The Syrah and Grenache grapes are destalked; the other red varieties are vinified by whole grape carbonic maceration.

Maceration periods are lengthy; pressing is carried out with two Vaslin horizontal presses. After cold settling, the bled rosé and the white wines (direct pressing) undergo fermentation at low controlled temperatures. Philippe Montanié pays very close attention to producing aromatic wines that are sutle and complex, and as natural as possible (limited use of SO2 is made).

The red wines are blended in late winter and stored in enamelled concrete vats in cellars that are half underground, obviously making it possible to effect good temperature controls. The rosé and red wines are bottled during the winter months. Part of the red Corbières is transferred to oak casks for between one and two years.

Corbières

A.O.P. 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...


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....

Auberge
du Vieux Puits

Auberge du Vieux Puits - Fontjoncouse





If you love excellent food and wine, then there can be no finer restaurant in the South of France as Auberge du Vieux Puits. This 3 star Michelin restaurant is run by the celebrated French chef, Gilles Goujon. I can not recommend this restaurant highly enough. The food, the service, the wine, the cheese . . . all were excellent. Nobody has given Gilles Goujon anything for free. On the contrary. In a bucolic atmosphere far from the mundane noise, in an austere building –sold by the tiny Town Hall– he has been progressively restoring for a decade, he has been able to captivate plenty of customers and reach the top of the French guides: 5 hats in Gault Millau and 3 stars in Michelin. We can say we are before a self-made man who had to fight and sweat blood to reach fame; a fame very few chefs deserve so clearly....


Château de Peyrepertuse

Château de Peyrepertuse - Duilhac-sous-Peyrepertuse

Sandwiched between two walls of folded Cretaceous limestone in the Pyrenees, Corbieres and Capron, the land of mountains Duilhac only. As its inhabitants were given the nickname "Skip-rock" (rock-jumping). Clinging to the rocky heights of the High Corbières, at an altitude of 800 metres. Peyrepertuse emerges from the midst of the Mediterranean scrubland known as the "garrigue" and overlooks the small village of Duilhac-sous-Peyrepertuse. This huge fortress covers the same area as the citadel of Carcassonne. Each year the largest medieval festival in the South of France takes place here when many troupes perform in the castle and in a reconstructed medieval village...


Les Terrasses
de la Berre

Les Terrasses de la Berre - Portel des Corbières



The owners of Les Terrasses de la Berre gives you a warm welcome. This charming restaurant is a small cosy place with a fireplace, badly needed, because it was lashing rain outside. They have a lovely menu. Salads for starters, a selection of lovely local cheeses and its majesty, the local specialty Cassoulet, what a culinary experience. Nice place, in a nice village, run by lovely people and fantastic food.... you happen to pass by, this is a must try place... The restaurant has multiple small terraces overlooking the Berre. Note that the unusable terraces are the days of high winds. Summer must be reserved for certain of being placed...
