Château Vaissière - Azille

Located in Occitanie, in the south of France, at the foot of the Montagne Noire, our vineyard benefits from a sunny Mediterranean climate, without the excess heat from the seaside. Indeed, the proximity of the mountain guarantees nights cold that oppose the hot and sunny days of summer. The particularity of the estate is the presence of two types of terroir: one warm and dry, from which the red wines of Château Vaissière come, the other, fresh by the river, where the white wines and the Syrah rosé. In this privileged area, the family's winegrowers have, over the generations, perfected their know-how in order to offer you excellence.
Château Vaissière - Azille
Château Vaissière was taken over in 1776 by Pierre Lignières. It was then passed from generation to generation to Léon Peirière. The latter adopted his nephew, Paul Mandeville, in 1929 after his parents' disappearance. Paul grew up in Vaissière, and after a law degree from a doctorate, he took over ownership in 1952. Endowed with a curious and innovative spirit, Paul was the first to plant Syrah in Languedoc in 1960. In 1971 he became the first in Europe to mechanically harvest the grapes with a self-propelled machine from Chylsom Ryder imported from the United States...
Red Wine = Red Wine White Wine = White Wine Rosé = Rosé
 
 
Father of three children, he transmitted his passion and know-how to his son Olivier, who took over the family farm in 1984. They tested white grape varieties at Vaissière, in particular Sauvignon. Having good results, Olivier continues on this path, plants and develops Chardonnay and Viognier. Today, and always looking for new things, Olivier and his daughter Virginie, select the best vines of the property and develop exceptional wines for your pleasure.

Château Vaissière is located in the commune of Azille, between Narbonne and Carcassonne, in the heart of Languedoc. The vineyard surrounds the farm buildings, built with local stones in ocher, pink hues. In the center of the cellar facade, under a roof of small multicolored tiles, a monumental clock has punctuated the work since 1913. The whole is decorated with olive trees several hundred years old, cypresses as well as Mediterranean pines. On the hillsides of the estate we find the old vines of Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Pinot noir and even a few rows of Malbec. Lower down by the river and shaded by poplars, on a cooler and damper soil, the vines of Viognier, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat flourish.

The culture of the vine and the vinification of the wines of Château Vaissière have been part of a rational exploitation approach for many years. This exploitation is reflected throughout the production of the wine: from the grape to the bottle, from the vine to the cellar. This constant concern for rational production makes it possible to reinforce the positive impacts of viticultural practices on the environment and to reduce their harmful effects, without prejudicing the quality of the finished product, or calling into question the essential contribution of the hand from the winemaker...

Caunes-Minervois

L'abbaye de Caunes Minervois


Minervois

A.O.P. Minervois

The Minervois is one of the most ancient vineyards of the Mediterranean region. Indeed, its land was chosen by the Romans as providing ideal conditions for the first vines they planted in Languedoc Roussillon. Its name comes from the ancient city of Minerve, a stronghold built by the Romans and dedicated to the goddess Minerva. Since that time, many amphora shards and vestiges of cellars have been discovered, testimony to the importance of this vineyard. The region, austere in winter and redolent with sunshine in summer, has survived over the centuries its invasions by barbarians, Arabs and Christians. The essence of Minervois la Livinière, as in so many Midi appellations, is the blend; a marriage of different grape varieties that adds subtle nuance of flavour to the whole. Natural alcohol level must reach a minimum of 12% without enrichment (so no chaptalisation) and maximum yield is a modest 45 hl/ha. Ageing may be in barrel or vat, and unlike basic Minervois, the wine must be bottled at source, so cannot be sent off to a négociant elsewhere in France...


Minerve

Minerve

On the border between the Aube and the Herault, in the middle of the Minervois vineyard, this medieval village is perched on a rocky outcrop that overlooks the Cesse and the Brian rivers. Its elevated location made it, during the Cathar wars, a refuge for heretics after the sack of Beziers in the beginning of the 13th century. The town has preserved its old stone buildings from that time. The quickest way to get to this Cathar village is the D15 highway. You will not be disappointed, as Minerve has a lot to offer. In fact, it is listed as one of the “most beautiful villages in France”. Park your car outside the village, and take a tour on foot to see these wonders up close. Right away, you will see the remains of a medieval castle from the 13th century. Not far from these remnants, at the top of the village, you will see the church of Saint-Etienne that dates from the 11th century. This religious building in the Roman style houses an altar that was likely built in the year 456. Finally, admire the natural bridges dug out by the canyons of the Cesse and the Brain, or the old ramparts that have been completely restored...
