WHERE IS OUR DOMAINE
Our domaine is situated on the north end of the Appellation “Corbières“, in the Aude county, 5 km from Lézignan- Corbières.
Nestled in a green setting surrounded by maritime essences, this impressive chateau which had already been mentioned in topographical layouts of 1770 and refurbished several times, offers a unique character.
Château La Bastide is ranked first in numerous tastings including: USA, Canada, England , Benelux, Germany, Japan, China and other countries where 100 % of the area of production is exported.
TERROIR OR SOIL
SCEA Château la Bastide has 180 Ha with 60 Ha in the “Appellation d’Origine Protégée Corbières” and “Indication Géographique Protégée Aude Hauterive” area. The soil is rich with limestone – slate terraces from the quaternary period with large gravel from alluvial origin.
Our priority, for several decades now, has been to re-plant varieties with quality grape varieties. Convinced that the quality of wine starts in the vineyard we have favoured hight density planting (from 4500 to 5500 feet / ha). This allows for high trellising and leaf ensuring good exposure and excellent ventilation of the berries.
