Château La Casenove

The winery is located in the municipality of Trouillas in the French region of Roussillon, only ten kilometres from the Mediterranean coast near the Spanish border. It was founded in 1967 by Jacques Montès. In 1987 he handed over the management to his son Etienne Montè, a former press photographer. In close collaboration with the oenologist Jean-Luc Colombo, quality improvement measures were implemented. The vineyards cover 70 hectares of vineyards on gravel and morainic scree soils interspersed with quartz, gneiss and granite. Intensive care of the vines, targeted low yields and selective harvesting at optimal maturity create the basis for the wines. Long maceration is obligatory in order to achieve a high degree of colour leaching. Under AC Côtes du Roussillon, the "Cuvée du Commandant François Jaubert" (30% Carignan, 30% Syrah, 30% Grenache Noir, 10% Mourvèdre), the "Torrespeyres" (80% Syrah, 20% Carignan) and the "Pla del Rei" (100% Syrah) are produced. Under the AC Rivesaltes a red wine (Grenache Noir) and a white wine "Ambre" (Macabeo, Grenache Blanc) are produced. Furthermore there are the red Vins de pays Côtes Catalanes "La Garrigiue" (40% Carignan, 30% Syrah, 30% Grenache) and "Masia M" (50% Carignan, 50% Grenache), as well as a white one from Maccabeu and Malvoisie.
