Rares Terroirs // 2016

N°4 Montagne d’Alaric – Red Wine

Rares Terroirs is a collection of wines from the Languedoc Roussillon region.
AOC Corbières wines from the Alaric mountain owe their generous and expressive character to a traditional grape variety on clay-limestone soils and a climate characterized by marine and western flows.

All the selected terroirs have a history and their own specific characteristics that are ideal for the crafting of fine wines. All are premium, high-quality wines, whose unusual aromas set them apart and which have been selected to offer consumers an alternative drinking experience.

Wineyard

For our vintage Nº4, we found the perfect wines which are rocked by the west and sea winds, anchored by clayed-lime soils, the wineyard is ideally situated. The winemaker has also chosen authenticity in the winemaking and ageing methods allying tradition and modernity.

The whole estate is in organic farming, that is to say that all herbicides or phytosanitary products are banned, the purpose of this is to transmit to our children a territory and the healthiest possible products.
Therefore, “organic authenticity” is the key word of Rares Terroirs Nº4
