Pinot Noir 100%

Produced from grapes grown on the hills of the Aude Valley, at an altitude of 500 meters. Although close to the heat of the Mediterranean, the altitude creates a significant variation between day and night time temperatures. The warm days ensure the grapes ripen, whilst the cold nights ensure they retain the fresh fruit flavours and good acidity.

The whole grapes are loaded into stainless steel vats to undergo semi-carbonic maceration: the weight of the grapes in the vat crushes those at the bottom, and the juice begins to ferment with natural yeasts in an environment with little oxygen, helping retain fresh fruit flavours. After cool fermentation for approximately 2 weeks, half the wine is aged in stainless steel vats, and the remainder in oak barrels, 10% of which are new. Malolactic fermentation is encouraged. The wine is blended and bottled in February / March.

The business was established by Christian Collovray and Jean-Luc Terrier in 1982. They initially expanded the business from a family vineyard in the Mâconnais by developing wine making facilities. In 1997 they purchased the Château d'Antugnac and its vineyards in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Although 600kms from the original vineyards, the altitude and soil structure results in a similar climate and environment to the Mâconnais enabling the owners to apply their experiences in Burgundy to the production of wines in a different geographical area.
