"Les Autres Terres" Blanc - dry white wine, created from Chardonnay grapes grown in organic vineyards of a unique terroir in the Limoux region in the upper Aude valley. Marl soils, rich in shell rock, give the wine a piercing mineral flavor, and the height of the vineyards allows the berries to gradually gain phenolic substances due to fluctuations in day and night temperatures. After manual harvesting, the berries are separated from the ridges, passed through a press and subjected to short-term maceration. Alcoholic fermentation and subsequent aging for 6 months take place in stainless steel vats.
Gilles Azam bought the first vines for the vineyard of his Les Hautes Terres winery with an area of 13 hectares back in 2000. Using the height of the vineyard, exposure and organic viticulture, the winemaker opted for the elegance and complexity of the wines. Chardonnay was planted at maximum height to increase the acidity. The local Mauzak variety, which tolerates dry weather well, grows on limestone outcrops, and the slender rows of vines, including Chenin Blanc, face south and southwest. On the clay slopes there are vineyards with Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec varieties. The unique terroir owes its origin to the ancient sea, the waters of which covered the current vineyards more than 50 million years ago. Until now, the soil is replete with fossils of sea shells. The influences of the Mediterranean and Atlantic climates collide here, creating the conditions for the emergence of exceptional wines.
