Gorges du Torgan - Montagne du Tauch

Picturesque gorge at the foot of Mount Tauch...

Apart and, the only other sizeable settlement in this terroir is Tuchan, on the slopes of Mont Tauch, 917m (2800 ft) high.

The name comes from the Occitan word touch, meaning yew tree, popular here as elsewhere in pre-Christian times.
Gorges du Torgan - Montagne du Tauch
Only a few of these trees now remain.

On the slope of Mont Tauch is the chapel of Notre Dame de Faste. Its presence in this remote spot is explained by the spring that rises here.

It was almost certainly a holy place before it was Christian place. It is approached by a track...
  The area is noted for its red wines. There are Caves at Tuchan, Paziols, Villeneuve , Cascatel, Padern and Cucugnan. The Mont Tauch Cave in Tuchan can offer a variety of red Fitou wines including oak aged as well white and rose wines of the area. The Mont Tauch Cave supplies Sainsburys, Tesco, Co-Op etc and the deserved reputation of the high quality of their wines, especially the Fitou, has made the village prosper. The Mont Tauch co-operative has recently undergone a facelift to establish a new visitor experience, tourist information and retail outlet. Muscat de Rivesaltes is a white dessert wine and Maury is a red dessert wine from the Tuchan Cave. Two independent wine-makers in Tuchan are Domaine de Rolland (he has an outlet just a few paces along from us) and Chateau Wialla. There are a number of independent Caves in the area such as Chateau Nouvelles just outside Tuchan (D611 north). Why not increase your enjoyment and knowledge of wine by taking a short course at Vinécole...

Cucugnan village, one of the most picturesque

Domaine du Grand Arc
 
 
Domaine du Grand Arc - Cucugnan
 
 
A.O.P. CorbièresThe domaine is situated to the south of the Corbières appellation, at Cucugnan, surrounded by the very impressive Cathares castles. The domaine was founded in 1995 by Fabienne and Bruno Shenck and today they own 25 hectares of vineyards, several of wich are very old, the Carignan for example are over a hundred years old. This particular erea in the mountains offers the best conditions for making flavoursome and well balanced wines: the sun, cool evenings, and the Cers ( northen wind) forming perfect conditions for the wine grapes to mature. The red wines reflect their land, complex, rich and generous. The vineyardsare cultivated without fertilizer or pesticides, thanks to an observation of the bio-indicators, the flora end fona, and a respect for the yield of each plant. We pay great attention to the maturity of the grapes, and a vigourous selection takes place during the harvest, wich is always done by hand. We procede to a vinification process entirely free of sulfur ans yeast, with nothing else added.These areour requirements in order to produce top quality wines. We are very attentive to the grape maturation and the grape selection during the hand made picking, wich avoids using chemical products or adding yeasts, without giving up our requirements to produce quality wines. In 2013, we decided to intergate the methods of organic farming, and since 2016 the wines are certified organic...

 
 
Domaine du Verdouble
 
 
Domaine du Verdouble - Cucugnan
 
 
A.O.P. CorbièresI created "Domaine du Verdouble - Cucugnan" and settled in a private cellar in the city of Cucugnan, aware that I am the keeper of a rare and precious heritage: Terroir with exceptional wine qualities, unique historical environment, cultural environment actively supported by private actors and dynamic institutions. Although 80% of my vines are in A.O.P. Corbières, I have chosen the appellation Vin de Pays de Cucugnan for all my wines (including Corbières). Long used as a "subclass" of the AOP, the name "Vin de Pays" now once again witnesses the peculiarities of a terroir. Making a new wine means wanting to tell a new story. Cucugnan is the village of the story. From the top of the promontory, it watches over an exceptional site located in the heart of the wild Corbières, in the shadow of the Cathar castles of Quéribus and Peyrepertuse. Here it is nature that sets the pace and I, the winegrower, from pruning to harvesting, manage my vines while maturing my wines, carefully and without tricks. In this land of sun and wind, the grapes are harvested by hand, ripe and healthy. This is how natural wines are created, rich in the land and in the memory of mankind...
