Château des Erles

It was in the eighties that François Lurton became interested in the Languedoc Roussillon and was among the first to spot the region's viticultural potential. In 2001 he decided with his brother Jacques 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.
  • Variety

    50 % Syrah, 25 % Grenache noir, 25 % Carignan
    The Syrah contributes with great depth of colour, roundness, fine tannins and spices.
    The Grenache and Carignan for their part, provide volume and substance in the
    mouth, fruitiness and some spices.

  • Location

    The Château des Erles is located on the hills of Villeneuve Corbières in the heart of
    the HAUT FITOU.

  • Tasting notes

    Dense dark colour.
    Very intense nose with black fruit and mild spices.
    Smooth, rich palate with a spicy finish.

  • The Vintage

    Despite the dry winter, vines in the Roussillon benefitted from some rainfall during the
    spring and summer, which made for a balanced vegetative cycle. Summer temperatures were lower than the seasonal average, which slowed the maturing cycle and resulted in later harvests, producing more subtle and more complex grapes. On the 8th September, a full moon phase and plenty of sunshine brought three weeks of beautiful fine weather. And like everyone else, we were therefore pleasantly surprised by the splendid month of September, which made up for any delay in maturity.

  • Suggestions

    Beef rib with mixed herbs, roast pork, lightly spiced dishes, broad range of cheeses.
