Terroir(s)See the interactive terroirs map
The grapes are mainly sourced from two terroirs: the foothills of the Montagne Noire, north of Carcassonne, for freshness and spicy notes, and the Aude River plain whose grapes lend length and structure to the wine.
The grapes are harvested at their peak of ripeness, in early October. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled tanks and is followed by a long maceration period that lasts 2 to 3 weeks.
Endowed with lovely crimson colour, this Les Jamelles Cabernet-Merlot boasts an intense, complex nose of ripe raspberry and blackcurrant, sundried tomatoes, pink peppercorns and coffee. On the palate, its velvety tannins voluptuously fill the mouth. This wine is round, fleshy, pleasingly powerful and impeccably mellow.
Food & Wine
Serve at 16°-17°C, with a beef rib roast or steak, duck breast or a rabbit or wild boar terrine. Catherine particularly likes to pair it with a rack of veal with chanterelle mushrooms, or roast duck with turnips and grapes.
