Domaine de Cabrol - Aragon

The domaine is found about 20 kilometers north of Carcassonne with its famous medieval walled city. Follow the D118 in direction of Mazamet. The domaine has produced just wine, for a very long time, even if the methods, vines and wines have changed. Of the 125 hectares of the domaine, 21 are vines, the rest being left to nature (heathland, forest). We are also planting more and more young olive trees to accompany the almond trees. It's not a diversification, the aim being aesthetic, reminding us that it is truly a mediterranean climate.

The soil is chalky and often very stony. Find yourself amongst thyme, lavander and a few green oaks standing out above the vegetation. Vines are the only plants that can be cultivated in this soil and climate. the roots push their way through the fossils of marine molluscs to search as deep as possible for the water needed to resist the summer droughts, whilst the leaves capture the sun's rays to turn the sap into the sugary juice stocked in each grape. Not forgetting the winds, east and west, almost always present. The altitude too, (up to 300 meters), which brings a night-time coolness contrasting with the day-time heat, together favouring the ripening, and bringing porth wines with expression and finesse.
Red Wine = Red Wine White Wine = White Wine 
 
  We produce mainly red wine, but also a little rosé and white. Since 1990 we have planted syrah, cabernet-sauvignon, grenache and cabernet-franc with which to make our wines. Of the older vines, only the grenache has been kept, as it does not lose its quality; also a few rows of hundred year old aramon, carignan and other classics kept for more sentimental reasons...
Planted in straight or curved rows, 2 to 2.5 meters apart, depending on the lie of the land. They are supported by wires which help them grow high enough for the leaves to get plenty of sun, letting the grapes hang below. The soil is turned between the rows, spraying is kept to a minimum, and organic matter spread as necessary, to yield between 20 and 45 hectoliters per hectare, depending on the age and situation of the vine. It's enough to help nature just a little for the vines to give the best fruit possible, without which we would be unable to make good wine, as it's the quality of the grapes that produce the quality of the wine. The wine producer is not a chemist, especially on our domaine, capable of correcting any deficiencies or faults in the raw materials. Contrary to general opinion, the vines keep us busy all year long. Pruning takes place when all the leaves have fallen, an important task which forms the shape of each plant, but also determines the quantity and therefore the quality of the grapes. This long job takes place over several months during winter. Vines have a relatively short and rapid vegetation season, spring until midsummer, requiring all our energy to try and keep up with the growth; lifting the wires, cutting down suckers, removing excess bunches of grapes, working the soil, protective spraying ... Finally, in August, there's a period of relative calm. There is also work in the "cave" all year round, not just on rainy days, because the wine also needs attention.
The "vendanges", or grape picking, a highlight of the year, starts in early September for the white, and late September till mid October for the red. It's a busy time in the vines and the cave, the culmination of months of hard work and nature's gift. Each year is different, giving character to the wine.

Cabardès

A.O.P. 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....

Abbaye
de Villelongue

Abbaye de Villelongue - Saint-Martin-Le-Vieil

An abbey that combines the austerity of the Cistercian tradition with the flamboyance of its sculptures and its romantic setting. It has all the charm and poetry of a garden inspired by the middle ages but placed in what was once a monastic enclosure. It offers a fine example of architecture and sculptures that are typical of southern Languedoc Gothic of the 13th and 14th centuries. In garden, enclosed by living osier fencing, cucumber and squash plants spill over the wickerwork and climb to invade the espaliered peach trees. Marrows and old varieties of tomato form part of the decor. On the rockery, plants grow that were used in the middle ages for their medicinal properties or for dyeing or decorations. Ancient tiles form a border to the flowerbeds. The singing of parakeets mingles with the gentle sounds of the fishpond. This unusual and restful garden is somewhere really unique to visit...
