Gorges du Torgan - Montagne du Tauch

Picturesque gorge at the foot of Mount Tauch...

Apart an, 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...
  Specialities

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...

Corbières

A.O.C. 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...


Fitou

Fitou A.O.C.

The first "Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée" wine of Languedoc-Roussillon, is only produced in nine small communal areas: FITOU, Caves, Treilles, Leucate and La Palme, which are all beside the sea, between Narbonne and Perpignan, and Cascastel, Paziols, Tuchan, and Villeneuve in the Corbières-Massif. Documents going back as far as Philip Augustus, Louis XIII and Louis XIV bear witness to the long-standing reputation of Fitou wines.Rabelais particularly appreciated "vin de Palme" which now has the "Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée Fitou" label. he vineyards in Fitou are set out on shaly and argilocalcareous soils with exceptional exposure to the sun. The countryside, whose relief consists in parts of hills and slopes and in others of plateaux, has the advantage of a particularly dry climate and is often swept by a high wind, the "Cers"...

Château
de Quéribus

Château de Quéribus - Cucugnan

The Cathar castle Queribus in the south of France (located in the heart of the Corbieres) still stands today as an impressive memorial to the Albigensian crusade of the thirteenth-century. It was only in 1255 that this mountain top fortress fell to French Catholic knights. Queribus held out an additional eleven years beyond the more widely known Cathar castle at Montsegur, which gave Queribus the distinction of being the last of the Cathar castles. As a result, in many ways the capture of Queribus represents the end of the organized Cathar movement and is sometimes referred to as "the last bastion." Geographically, the castle is high and isolated.The exhausting hike up the mountain, a few hundred steep meters, that is necessary to reach the castle is rewarded by the stunniing military architecture of Queribus. The gothic style hall and its polygonal keep are especially worth seeing...
