A loop of 52 km or four mini-loops from each village.

The large loop connecting the villages Villeneuve-Minervois, Caunes-Minervois and Trausse-Mnervois Aude and Félines-Minervois in Herault. It gives you the opportunity to discover the different marble quarries of these different villages through the undergrowth at the foot of the Montagne Noire in the middle of beautiful landscapes. In particular the "Marbres Rouges Incarnat of Caunes-Minervois" and the "Rouge Griotte of Félines-Minervois", both of which served in large quantities for the embellishment of the Château de Versailles.

The marbles, in the modern sense of the term, were formed from a gigantic limestone deposit that occurred between the Upper Devonian and Lower Carboniferous periods, in a time span of 50 million years between - 380 and 330 million years. At that time, the surroundings of Caunes were almost covered by the sea, only emerged the mountains of Minervois. In this shallow sea lived many animax and plants including the Goniatites, ancestors of the Ammonites and species of octopus living in a kind of shell, and the Othocera, fossil with him also a shell right. For millions of years, at their death, all these animals and plants were found at the bottom of the sea and accumulated on top of each other, dragged by currents and forming pockets of accumulation. Mixed with plankton, these deposits are gradually transformed into dolomite limestone. It is a phenomenon called metamorphism which under the effect of the temperature and the pressure exerted by the underground plates and with the contribution among others of the iron oxide which allows us to have colors and this consistency that the we know marble today. The spots and fossils that can be seen have simply been forgotten by the process of metamorphism, for example manganese, which appears in the form of grayish or black marks, particularly in Villerambert.

Jean-Baptiste Senat
Domaine Jean-Baptiste Senat - Trausse-Minervois
A.O.P. Minervois A courtyard opens out onto the narrow streets of Trausse, in the heart of the Minervois. A row of fig trees backs onto an old stone wall. A red gate, freshly painted. The Argent Double flows nearby, the foothills of the Montagne Noire can be seen in the distance. Here, Jean-Baptiste and Charlotte grow grapes on 15 hectares, respecting the land and the rules of organic agriculture. “For natural and honest wines you need thriving soil and healthy vines” sums up the master of the house. All year round, the domain’s vines are cared for according to the ethics of organic agriculture, totally, as certified by Ecocert. Here, pruning is done patiently and weeding the old fashioned way, being ploughed back in. The earth, regularly turned over and worked with patience, becomes an ally. There is no question of rushing things, or of imposing standards. Because a good winemaker guides more than he imposes, the vines are treated with kindness, according to their needs: a goblet shape to make the most of the coolness offered by shade or spread out to gain maturity. Allowing them to live, to develop, that is the key...

Le Clos du Marbrier
Le Clos du Marbrier - Caunes-Minervois
A.O.P. MinervoisAn old workshop for marble builtup against the medieval ramparts of the village, a garden at the end of a narrow street nestled in the heart of Caunes Minervois, a beautiful bergerie overlooking the Argent Double river and the Pyrenees off in the distance, made me dream. Here there is not a long family tradition: every thing is to be invented. A winery on two levels, a small, shady tasting area, a naturally cool cellar with oak barrels for aging the wines, taking form little by little in what become at the same time aplace of work and a place for living. The vines of Clos du Marbrier are situated in the magnificient "terroirs" of Félines Minervois and La Livinière in the foothills of the Montagne Noire at 400 meters altitude. While stroling the lanes of the village on the path marked by the ceramic lizard, you will not miss passing the Clos du Marbrier. Tasting the wines and visit the winery rather by a appointment. Le Clos du Marbrier is situated in the village of Caunes Minervois...
