the harvest, between Genesis and intuition

les vendanges, entre Genèse et intuition
Villemajou Castle, "The Genesis"
“Cradle of a Great Adventure of strength and gentleness. »
It is in this area located in Corbières in the heart of the Boutenac cru that all history began. Georges Bertrand bought the Villemajou estate in 1973.
The soil composed of clay and sandstone is fed by streams coming from the Pyrenees. The vines of the Villemajou estate are the perfect expression of the Mediterranean character: they take their strength deep in the soil subjected to the force of the wind in a semi-arid climate. The estate has four red grape varieties: (Carignan, Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre) and three white grape varieties (Marsanne, Roussanne and Vermentino).
This year, the harvest began on August 30 for the Cinsault grape variety.
Each grape variety is vinified separately to be blended in January and finally aged for twelve months in new French oak barrels.
Like its hundred-year-old vines, the wines produced on the Château Villemajou estate can be kept for several years at home.
Cigalus, "the intuition"
"Field where, from an intuition, the intention is born, as obvious as the song of the cicadas. »
Nestled in the heart of the Corbières on the terroir of Fontfroide (“cold springs”), the Cigalus estate covers 75 hectares. It offers a unique environment thanks to its geographical location: its skilful mixture of sandstone and sand soil retains water from surrounding sources and provides constant hydration.
These optimal conditions make it possible to accommodate both red grape varieties (Merlot, Syrah Mourvèdre, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan) but also white grape varieties (Sauvignon Chardonnay, Viognier).

This year, the harvest began on August 18 on the Chardonnay grape variety.

Each grape variety is vinified separately to be blended in February and finally aged for twelve months in new French oak barrels.

All bottles of wine are kept for a minimum of one year before being offered to you.
