Domaine d'Aussières

“Such a wild natural place with great force and beauty and with land of exceptional potential”

Presentation

Owned by Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) since 1999, Domaine d'Aussières' exceptional location, unique terroir and rich history make it one of the most beautiful and oldest properties in the Narbonne region.
Aussières' history of wine production goes back to Roman times; in 1211, the estate became the property of the Abbey of Fontfroide, to which it remained attached until the Revolution as a "Cistercian granary", effectively a farm that was responsible for supplying the Abbey.
The Aussières vineyard, two thirds of which are in the Corbières appellation, currently covers 167 hectares, to the south of Narbonne in the Fontfroide foothills. The soil is very shallow and pebbly on the tops of hills, and then becomes sandy and deeper in the plains. The vineyard is divided between Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Carignan, Cinsault and one third in Vin de Pays d'Oc (Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot).
