The Coasts of Roussillon Villages deploy from the foothills of the Corbieres in the north to the banks of the Tet in the south. If the climate is typically Mediterranean, it is however regulated by altitudes which vary from 100 to 400m. On its expanse, the appellation offers the vines a variety of tiered soils alternating between schists, granite arenas, gneisses, red limestone soils or stony terraces. The wines produced there are exclusively red wines. They come from a blend of at least two main grape varieties selected from Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan and Grenache noir to which Lledoner pelut can be added. The two main grape varieties contribute at least 80% for each cuvée, with a limit of 60% for Carignan. Depending on the climate and the nature of the soil, the yield is limited to 45 hectoliters per hectare. Quality factor, the appellation has a good density of old vines where Grenache and Carignan are well represented. The red wines appear dense and powerful while deploying nuances adjusted to the variety of terroirs. This range of variations is expressed even more finely by the existence of territorial names within the appellation itself:

  • Côtes du Roussillon Villages "Les Aspres".
  • Côtes du Roussillon Villages "Caramany"
  • Côtes du Roussillon Villages "Lesquerde"
  • Côtes du Roussillon Villages "Latour de France"
  • Côtes du Roussillon Villages "Tautavel"
