Château La Voulte-Gasparets
Highly respected estate – extremely low yields
Nestled midway between the cities of Carcassone and Narbonne is the village of Gasparets, home to the critically acclaimed estate of Chateau La Voulte Gasparets.
Located on the site of an old river bed, the vineyard’s soil has been enriched by alluvial deposits and round, sorted pebbles that intensify the heat of the soil during the day, then slowly release heat at night.
The vast quantity of pebbles in the soil does lead to lower yields, ensuring of head winemaker Patrick Reverdy has little room forever.
However, over the years, Patrick has developed a reputation that sees him regarded among the best in the business, and the Corbières that he produces from the pebble-filled soil of Gasparets is no exception to that rule – a wonderful blend that showcases the quality that this appellation has to offer.
Six generations of winegrowers have learnt how to exploit the assets and characteristics of their vineyards and to produce an outstandingly well-balanced wine, one of the greatest of the Corbières Appellation. Soft red fruit aromas coupled with some notes of chocolate and cassis.
