The vineyard of Corbieres is located in Languedoc, south of the Aude. It unfolds from hillsides to valleys, from the foot of the Pyrenees to the foothills of the Montagne Noire. Its northernmost limit straddles the road axis which connects the city of Carcassonne to the city of Narbonne. To the east, the vineyard flirts with the Mediterranean, coming up against the natural border of the Sigean lake and the edges of theFitou appellation and Coasts of Roussillon. With a wine-growing area that extends over 10 hectares, the Corbieres form the largest appellation area of Occitania vineyards and a fortiori of Languedoc. Exposed on the side of the reliefs or spilling out into the furrow of valleys, the typical grape varieties of the appellation take root on soils whose hardiness has always been favored by the vines. A region of red wines par excellence, Carignan, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah bear fruit in a dominant presence. On this mineral soil, white wines are not left out. Their main grape varieties present the rich nuances drawn from Grenache blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, Bourboulenc, Macabeu or Vermentino. In this wine-growing environment interspersed with scrubland set with high limestone reliefs, the vines benefit from a climate where the humid, rising Mediterranean mildness rubs against the dry harshness of the Piedmont climates often crossed by the Tramontana. The wines produced in the vineyard vigorously express all the contrasts.
At the heart of the appellation Corbieres stands out a terroir of great qualitative value forming by itself the AOC Corbieres Boutenac. The vineyard which leans against the slopes of the La Pinada massif is one of the remarkable wines of Languedoc.
