CHATEAU DES ERLES
In 2001 François Lurton and his brother have decided to buy an estate with a magnificent
terroir in the forgotten confines of the Corbières region. After taking control of the Château des Erles company, they restored the estate and turned it into one of the flagship estates of the Fitou region. The property's exposed 18 hectare vineyards of Ardoises and Abrigans are located on the rolling hillsides of «Les Côteaux de Villeneuve-les-Corbières» in the inland region of the Haut Fitou.
CUVEE DES ARDOISES
Our Ardoises cuvée could be considered the Château des Erles' «second» wine. Just as much care is put into its production but following vinification it is aged in Bordeaux-style oak barriques for 12 months
DOMAINE DU MINISTREDomaine du Ministre is located in the village of Muriel les Béziers, in the St Chinian appellation in the South of France close to the Mediterranean. Its vineyards have a good southerly aspect and the 20 year old vines are able to reach truly exceptional levels of ripeness and phenolic concentration year after year.
