Our Terroir and our Grapes
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.
