|What experts say|
*** Outstanding Wine "The label is inspired by a statue representing a lioness crunching a bunch of grapes. This wine makes us roar with pleasure, it is complex and intense, a veritable melting-pot joining marinated pepper and garrigue scent. On the palate, a touch of vanilla, a hint of pepper and liquorice, warm notes of mocha. The wine evolves with suppleness, smoothness and melted tannins. Good taste, elegance and originality."
Gold Medal at Concours Général Agricole de Paris
Bronze Medal at Decanter World Wine Awards "Sweet, vanilla, smoky and blackberry aromas with a herbal note. Silky-sweet oak and expressive fruit on the palate."
87/100 "Beautiful garnet colour. Rich nose, reminiscent of wild herbs, thyme, bay leaf, pepper on a background of stone fruit. On the palate, far from warm peaks, the wine expresses itself with freshness, balance and suppleness. Undeniable know-how." (previous vintage)

La Lionne is a white wine made of 100% Sauvignon Blanc, coming from strictly selected parcels within the vineyard of the Château - which can clearly been tasted in the glass. It has a nice golden robe with explosive aromas of citrus and white flowers, a buttery structure and a fresh peppery finish. A slightly complex bottle, ideal for amateurs looking for...
Château de l'Engarran is the flagship cuvée of the estate, made from different parcels. A complex bottle, more typical from a Languedoc red, with a bigger structure and elegant tannins (33% of the cuvée is aged in oak barrels), aromas of ripe black fruit and spices, and a nice freshness at the same time. Highly recommended for Languedoc amateurs, this is...
Quetton Saint Georges is the high-end red cuvée from the Château - and we can clearly realise it in the glass. Powerful red with a big structure and complex flavours of ripe black cherry and blackberry, it benefits from a high recognition among wine critics (90-92 from Robert Parker!). A must if you want to discover a top bottle of Languedoc it is already...
Le Parc is the absolute cherry on the cake. Yes, it is an expensive Languedoc wine, but we have never tasted anything as such in the region. Le Parc is a huge, full-bodied and explosive red, made of 100% Syrah coming from a specific parcel. It shows an incredibly concentrated nose of roasted blackcurrant, cassis and eucalyptus. The palate is really...
This is an amazing but unusual rosé from Languedoc. It is light and fresh as a Côtes de Provence - which is definitely what we love for a rosé. Ideal for an afternoon in the sun or even better, on a barbecue. Summer is not quite there yet, but you will be happy to have a few bottles ready as soon as the temperature starts coming up!
The Château de l’Engarran has been in the same family for years and is managed by two sisters - Diane and Constance - with a very feminine touch! Terres de l’Engarran is a lovely Merlot-based Languedoc, easy to drink with notes of red fruit on the palate. A touch of mint and spices on the finish immediately call for another sip. Perfect with grilled meat...
