Domaine Lalaurie T'Wines
Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah
Vin de Pays d'Oc IGP, Languedoc, France
Ripe, fresh red fruits like blackcurrant and plum flavours from the Cabernet and a little peppery finish compliments of the Syrah. It’s adventurous winemakers like these who will ultimately save us from terminal boredom.
Perfect gravel soils allow the Cabernet Sauvignon to ripen aided by the lovely ripe Syrah fruit. An upfront, fruity red from this dry, sunny part of France. Careful planning in their different soil types and aspects ensure perfect conditions for each of these grapes.
Domaine Lalaurie dates back ten generations. Now fronted by the strong and determined twin sisters, Audrey and Camille, there is a definitive move forward into a new generation of winemaking. The Chateau and family home is located in the quiet village of Ouveillan, 6 km from Narbonne.
Courage has always been the backbone of this family, and there is a long tradition of strong women at work here. Dating back to the 1850's, the time of the phylloxera blight, Audrey and Camille’s Great Great Grandmother saved her three hectares by washing each plant with a bucket of water.
Now expanding over 52 hectares, growing eight different varietals on various soils, the combination of Camille's expertise in Oenology and Audrey's skills in marketing ensure the continuation of the family tradition and the broaching of new horizons into the future.
Domaine Lalaurie has 52 HA of vines spread over different soil types. This yields wines that have characteristics specific to each soil type.
