Domaine de l'Aigle
The Domaine de l’Aigle is located close to the village of Roquetaillade, near Limoux in the foothills of the Pyrenees. The estate covers some 31 hectares, with vines planted between 250 and 500 metres above sea level, making it one of the highest vineyards in the Haute Vallée de l’Aude, and indeed the Languedoc.
Chardonnay vines thrive in climatic conditions similar to those of Burgundy, where the grape originated; an oceanic climate with continental influences, frequent rain fall and a wide temperature range.
The Domaine de l’Aigle estate produces Languedoc-Roussillon wines with a surprising freshness and an exceptional minerality. The vines are grown in compliance with the rules of sustainable agriculture set by Terra Vitis, with trace ability level and production techniques accredited by independent inspectors.
