Domaine d'Aigues Belles - Languedoc wines
It is always tricky to organise this Aigues Belles event, as wines are produced in small quantities and are very tough to get hold of. According to several wine critics, the whites are among the best white wines in Languedoc and we certainly agree: they are incredible, and you will not come across such quality for whites in the region – or even anywhere else!
But don’t get us wrong; the reds are also brilliant, sometime using unusual grapes for the region, such as Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon. They represent most of the production and are definitely worth trying.
The estate has been in the Palatan family since its creation in 1870. Partly abandoned after WW2, it was taken over by Gilles Palatan and Thierry Lombard in 2000, who overhauled it completely since then. 70% of vines are organically grown, harvest is manual to prevent any grape damage and winemaking is traditional. All wines spend time in French oak barrels, providing taste and structure.
Domaine d'Aigues Belles is very special to us - maybe one of our very top-picks - and we are very proud to be their only partner in the UK. Because of their small production, they usually fall under the radar of most big UK importers and this is where we can make a difference!
All wines are truly outstanding and available in limited quantities; so don’t miss this unique opportunity. As usual, there is no minimum order and delivery is free over £100. Enjoy!
