Château La Casenove

The winery is located in the municipality of Trouillas in the French region Roussillon just ten kilometers away from the Mediterranean coast near the Spanish border. It was founded in 1967 by Jacques Montès. In 1987, he handed over the management to his son Etienne Montè, a former press photographer. In close cooperation with the oenologist Jean-Luc Colombo, quality improvement measures were taken. The vineyards cover 70 hectares of vineyards on pebble and Moraine debris soils, interspersed with quartz, gneiss and granite. Through intensive care of the vines, deliberately low yields and selective grape harvest with optimal maturity, the basis for the wines is created. Obligatory is a long mash fermentation to achieve a high color leaching. Under the AC Côtes du Roussillon The "Cuvée du Commandant François Jaubert" (30% Carignan, 30% Syrah, 30% Grenache Noir, 10% Mourvèdre), the "Torrespeyres" (80% Syrah, 20% Carignan) and the "Pla del Rei" (100 % Syrah). Under the AC Rivesaltes a red wine (Grenache Noir) and a white wine "Ambre" (Macabeo, Grenache Blanc) are produced. Furthermore, there are the red Vins de pays Côtes Catalanes "La Garrigiue" (40% Carignan, 30% Syrah, 30% Grenache) and "Masia M" (50% Carignan, 50% Grenache), as well as a white one from Maccabeu and Malvoisie.
