Saint Polycarpe is situated near the town of Limoux on a stream which is a tributary of the Aude. The town is 7 km from Limoux, 8 km from Saint-Hilaire, 24 km from Carcassonne, 31 km from Mouthoumet and 42 km from Lagrasse. Saint-Polycarpe is located on the Green Meridian, the Paris Meridian. Founded in 783 by Athala, a Spanish nobleman who fled his own country when it was invaded by Muslims, St. Polycarp was in its beginnings, a Benedictine monastery with a few houses attached to it and surrounded by vineyards. Polycarp was a Bishop of Izmir in Turkey and a very important Saint in early church history. The church of Polycarpe in the Aude is named in honour of this Saint.

  The Abbey of Saint-Polycarpe is one of the oldest monastery's in the country and region of Rhedez. Its creation is nevertheless after that of the the founding of the famous Abbey of Alet, which is nearby. A Spanish nobleman named Attala left his homeland - which had been invaded by the Saracens (*), and then settled in the region called Rhedesium and retired to a small monastery, almost a simple hermitage, situated on the banks of the stream called Rieugrand and which bore the name of the monastery of St. Polycarp. Attala became prior of the convent and the place, and thanks to its wealth, became largely endowed. Charlemagne granted the abbot Attala certain privileges which were confirmed and expanded by his successors, Charles the Bald and Louis the Debonair. Nevertheless it is, if we can say so, a courtesy we give the convent of Saint-Polycarpe the name of an abbey. It was originally a simple priory and despite repeated competitions from the abbots of Lagrasse, St Polycarpe always remained under the control of the Abbey of Alet. Indeed, in a council held at Toulouse, in 1119, under the presidency of Pope Calixtus II, the only priests who had the right to attend the meeting, in conjunction with the bishops of the region, were those of Lagrasse, Aniane and Alet. Therefore, the Sueperiors of the other monasteries of the region were merely only trustees or priors. It was precisely during this council that it was confirmed in favour of the Abbey of Alet, possession of the monasteries of St. Polycarp and Saint-Paul-de-Fenouillet.

Domaine du Grès Vaillant - Saint Polycarpe
A.O.P. LimouxBlanquette de Limoux, Crémant de Limoux, Blanquette Méthode Ancestrale In the heart of the “Haute Vallée de l’Aude” and the Cathar Country, near Limoux, at the foot of the Pyrenees, the estate was founded by the Benedictine monks of the Abbey of Saint-Polycarpe in the 13th century. It is cultivated by Aigline de Causans and Laurent Maffeïs, peasant winemakers. In a setting that promotes biodiversity, our 7 hectares of vines are surrounded by woods, meadows and streams. Our vines are cultivated according to organic farming with our three draft horses. In organic farming, our vines therefore receive no weedkillers or synthetic pesticides. In symbiosis between plants, humans and animals, we work with our three draft horses (Rustica, Colette and Carolus) to limit the effect of compaction and thus promote soil life, while reducing our dependence on oil. . And with sheep grazing in the vines in winter. Our plots are surrounded by forests that blend white and green oak and strawberry bushes, as well as accompanying trees such as pine and almond trees. This promotes a great biodiversity that regulates the pests of the vine, in particular thanks to the numerous birds and bats...
