Carte des terroirs

We have over 230 ha of exceptional terroirs in Corbières and Minervois on lands with Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée and Pays d'Oc.

Five main terroirs, delimited around a "T", formed by the Aude and the Jourre rivers which cross the Domaine from north to south. A natural circus with more than 30 meters difference in altitude between the highest (parcels of Traverses) and the lowest points.
