Château Vaugelas

An oasis in the midst of the Corbières

Anecdote

The valley where the estate is located is home to terraces shaped during the formation of the Montagne Noire and Mount Alaric, the keystones of the Corbières. At its centre, 140 metres below ground, the subterranean fault line which crosses the land at Vaugelas provides natural irrigation for the vines.

AOP Corbières

The dry, sunny and hot Mediterranean climate promotes long growing cycles for vines whilst the north-westerly wind, which blows all year round, reduces the need for spraying.

The Corbières are home to an extensive range of soil types, including schist, sandstone, limestone and marl. The appellation is divided into four characteristic areas: the Hautes – Corbières; the Corbières – Méditerranée; the central Corbières; and the Corbières d'Alaric.
