A legendary terroir
A triptych of terroirs
For over five centuries, we’ve tamed this magical terroir to make fine sparkling wines. The secret of their character lies in the wise combination of Limoux’s three terroirs, which form the backbone of our cuvées: freshness from the Pyrenees, vinousness from the ocean and roundness from the Mediterranean.
A vineyard of experimentation
To move further ahead in our quest for finesse and elegance, we conduct advanced experiments on the vines. In our family vineyard, we try out new methods on our old vinestocks on the appellation’s highest land — stony, south-facing hillsides nearly 400m above sea level opposite the Pyrenees.
A chosen cultivation method
The choice of cultivation methods is decisive for our winery, region, partners, customers and future generations. We tested many kinds and gave the issue much thought before committing to integrated winemaking. The Terra Vitis approach convinced us that we could make high quality, healthy, authentic wines regardless of the vintage. Terra Vitis expresses, in Latin, the close, indissoluble bond between vine and terroir. It has become the unique national benchmark for integrated sustainable viticulture.
We emphasize our certification, which we obtained in 2013 and proudly display on our bottles’ labels. We are committed to sustainable development every step of the way in the winemaking process. Every day, we work on recycling our waste, cutting our energy consumption and looking for environmentally responsible suppliers. All our collaborators share our idea that sustainable development is a philosophy of progress. It lies at the heart of our continuous improvement strategy and our rootedness. Our actions in our local area attest to that commitment.
