Details

Domaine d'Aigues Belles, situated in the small village of Brouzet-les-Quissac in the Languedoc (between Montpellier & Nimes) was founded in 1870 by Eugene Bosc is still under the control of the same family; After a few decades of selling the grapes to the cooperative, the owner relaunched the estate in 2000 with the build-up of their own winery. A large part of the estate is situated within the Coteaux de Languedoc & Pic St Loup AOC appellations, yet the winemaker prefers to declassify some of their cuvees as a simpler Vin de Pays in order to create the upmost quality blend with the diversity of grapes present in the estate (Syrah, Grenache, Cabernet sauvignon or merlot).

The estate is in conversion for full organic certificate, with already 70% of the parcels in organic and the remaining treated in a sustainable approach. The vineyard soils are arid and stony with limestone and calcareous clay, perfect for growing high-quality grapes. They select their best parcels to be handpicked and vinified within the estate, the remaining being sold to the local cooperative. Winemaking is done with a minimalist approach, and all wines are aged in oak barrels, with usually 1/3 of new barrels. As a result, they produce a range of extremely precise and pure wines, delicious to enjoy now yet can aged for a few years.

Lombarde is their cuvee based on a dominance of Grenache (combined with Merlot & Cabernet) and is aged for over 12 months in French oak barrels. Very precise it showcase a spicy nose with stone fruits (plum, black cherry). Soft, extremely supple mouthfeel with a seductive melted character and aromatic balance. A wine for sharing, displaying an unmistakable sense of place. To decant for upmost enjoyment.
