It is on this winegrowing with the multiple Mediterranean scents that Roland Augustin, helped of his two sons Yann and Loïc, mature with a care meticulous person of the intense, complex and expressive wines. For better understanding the specificity of each vintage of Château Fabas, it is necessary to know of it the origins, type of vines and the type of maturing. The Winegrowing is pressed on a decoration of hillocks exposed to full midday, witness of the old relief to the very strong slopes where no culture is possible, only the pines of Alep and the Mediterranean vegetation is clutched on the red grounds of the hills. The vines are spread out over two levels over a reversed relief, the high terraces with the oldest grounds and the low terraces with the youngest grounds. The grounds are argilo-limestones, in the tops, the flint levels on the terraces, and the sandstone on the slopes...

Saint Jacques d’Albas
Château Saint Jacques d’Albas - Laure-Minervois
A.O.P. MinervoisGraham Nutter welcome you to Château Saint Jacques d’Albas, an emerging quality domain in the Minervois, Languedoc, Southern France. Surrounded by history from Roman times, the 13th Century Cathar religious movement and Saint Jacques de Compostelle pilgrimages, the domain has been producing award-winning Minervois AOC wines since 2001. We became owners of the property in early 2001 and immediately began a programme to re-invigorate the soil, reduce yields and vinify on-site. Since then, we have completed the restauration of the property with construction of a winery, an underground cellar, opened a public tasting area, as well as a music/seminar room for entertainment and wine-tourism. Share with us some of the history, metamorphosis and vinous potential that the Minervois and Saint Jacques d’Albas in particular has to offer!

Caunes-Minervois is an ancient village centered around an 8th-century abbey, sitting beside the Argent Double river where it comes down out of a Black Mountain valley and onto the plains. For visiting, Caunes-Minervois has some pretty bridges, a Medieval old-town with narrow streets and ancient houses, fountains, lavoirs and, of course, the 8th-century Benedictine Abbey. A possibly more important attraction for visitors are the several very good restaurants in the village. There's a beautiful red marble in this area, that was quarried here by the Romans and through Medieval times. The marble can be seen around the town, in building materials and sculptures scattered just about everywhere [horse-head photo]. For cafés in town, we liked the Grand Fountain Bar and Xxxx Hotel, with its shady terrace around the obelisk fountain, in the center of the village. Just down the Rue d'Aiguebelle from the café is the Jean Christophe Aterous wine shop, located in a cool, dark Medieval room where you can do wine tasting hosted by the elderly and very active nth-generation representative of the winery...
